Anne loved that time in her life when she prepared breakfast each morning for her two young children, Sara and Nicholas. Now her children have grown up and have lives and loves of their own. Spending hours alone, Anne’s world begins to twist around her. Has her favoured son Nicholas really returned to her? And what of the suspicious actions of her husband?
The Mother is a compelling and moving production that will leave you questioning the very nature of reality.
Molière Award-winning playwright Florian Zeller returns to the Tricycle following 2015’s critically-acclaimed sell-out run of The Father with this compelling show starring the BAFTA Award-winning and Olivier nominated actress Gina McKee. Completing the cast are Richard Clothier, Frances McNamee and William Postlethwaite.

‘Zeller’s style owes much to Pinter but he has a flair,
and a deep sympathy, that is all his own’
