The Coliseum’s productions have been nominated for a string of accolades at this year’s Manchester Theatre Awards.
Our June-July 2017 production of The Father starred Kenneth Alan Taylor as Andre, an 80 year old man living with dementia. Written by Florian Zeller and translated into English by Christopher Hampton, The Father takes the audience on a journey through Andre’s perspective.
“The Father deserves to be seen for both the quality of Zeller’s writing and also to see the vintage Alan Taylor at his very best”
