CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Friday, October
WEST CHESTERFIELD "The Father": Florian Zeller’s internationally acclaimed play is an exploration of who we are to ourselves when our signposts disappear. Each scene is an elliptical extended snapshot that seems to evoke a memory, but quickly the absurdist contradictions crowd in. We look inside the mind of Andre - an old man/retired dancer in his apartment with his adult daughter Anne, and her boyfriend. Or is it her first husband? And is she really moving to London? Laura, his new caregiver, the one he seems to like, keeps him company. So then why would she steal his watch? The play confounds expectations and works almost like a thriller as strangers keep turning up in Andre's flat. Whether he fully understands it or not, Andre is reaching the end of his time on this planet, and he's starting to lose grip on his sense of time and reality, starting to forget things both big and small. Sound grim? It’s not. Michael Fox Kennedy as Andre, along with Mo Hart, David Hiler, Jim Bombicino, Sadie Fischesser, Julie Holland. 7:30 p.m. Through Saturday, October 13. $15, $8 students.
