I’m telling you. I don’t understand what’s happening to me.
Nicolas is going through a difficult phase after his parents’ divorce. He’s listless, skipping school, lying and thinks that moving in with his father and his new family may help. A fresh start. When he doesn’t settle there either, he decides that going back to his mother’s may be the answer. When change feels like the only way to survive, what will he do when the options begin to run out?

London Theatre Review: The Son at Duke of York's Theatre
'He's a teenager, it's only a phase, it will pass'
Laurie Kynaston excels in what is, let's not make any bones about it, a difficult character to portray. There is a thread of mental illness that runs through this piece and it makes for uncomfortable, but nonetheless compelling viewing. The Son stirs the deep-rooted thoughts that we do not necessarily want to recognise, in ourselves and in others.
