El padre is one of the most famous plays of recent years. Premiered in 2012 in Paris, the French newspaper Le Point described it as “magisterial” and the newspaper La Croix as “unforgettable”. Its debut in London in 2016, the plat was described by The Guardian as “the best play of the year” and The Times said it was “one of the best plays of this decade”.
