Old Town Playhouse Studio Theatre presents The Father, the 2014 Tony award-winning play written by Florian Zeller and translated by Christopher Hampton. Performances of this honest and human story of dementia are April 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, and 28 at 7:30 p.m. and April 15 and 22 at 2 p.m. in the OTP Studio Theatre @ the Depot.

Tickets are $17 per person (plus fees) and are available by calling 800.836.0717 or by visiting MyNorthTickets.com. They may also be purchased at the Old Town Playhouse Box Office located at 148 E. Eighth St. in Traverse City. Remaining seats will be on sale at the Depot one hour before each performance.


This tragicomic mystery shows us the world through the eyes of an 80-year-old man as he loses control of his mind. The Father is an astonishingly unguarded play about the cruelties of love, the limits of patience, and the way parent-child relationships reverse as the years pass.
