Pangdemonium opens our 2020 Season with The Son, written by internationally acclaimed Florian Zeller, who was lauded by The Times as ‘the most exciting playwright of our time’. The Son forms the final part of the critically acclaimed trilogy that includes The Mother and The Father (Pangdemonium staged a sold-out run of The Father in 2018).
The Son is a powerful and moving story that urges a heightened awareness of mental health issues among our youth. This is a story of one family – and, in fact, a story of so many families – struggling to save a lost loved one, where sometimes love is not enough.
Directed by Tracie Pang, the play features Adrian Pang, Nazray, Serene Chen, Sharda Harrison, Shona Benson and Zachary Pang.
In keeping with Pangdemonium’s spirit of telling stories that tackle challenging themes, the play draws a focus on the stigma that people with mental health conditions face. To facilitate much needed conversation, there are pre and post show discussions in conjunction with Beyond the Label, an initiative by National Council of Social Services (NCSS).
