After a U.K. premiere engagement at the Kiln Theatre, Florian Zeller's The Son will bow in London's West End. Performances will run August 24 through November 2 at the Duke of York's Theatre, with opening night set for September 2.
Frequent collaborator Christopher Hampton reunites with the French writer to translate the play, about a boy navigating a difficult transition period after his parents' divorce.
Reprising their performances for the limited run are Amanda Abbington, Laurie Kynaston, John Light, and Amaka Okafor.
The play is the third chapter in Florian Zeller's trilogy, after The Father and The Mother (which recently played Off-Broadway in a production starring Isabelle Huppert).
