The Son at The Kiln

Isobel composed the music for Florian Zeller’s ‘The Son’ at the Kiln Theatre

Directed by Michael Longhurst
Cast: Amanda Abbingdon, John Light, Laurie Kynaston, Amaka Okafor, Martin Turner and Oseloka Obi.

The Times: ★★★★★ “Superbly acted, with a rhythm that keeps you on the edge of your seat, this final part of Florian Zeller’s trilogy is the most powerful of all.”

The Telegraph: ★★★★★ “To my mind, The Son is every bit the equal of The Father and, eschewing the riddling quality found in earlier works, in some ways it even eclipses it; the surgical precision of the writing achieves a devastating visceral impact.”

The Stage★★★★ The Son captivates in its enveloping feeling of inevitability, something that’s aided by Isobel Waller-Bridge’s disconcertingly ominous music. While it’s clear exactly what’s going to happen, as with all classic tragedies, everyone is powerless to prevent it. Zeller makes a virtue out of this predictability and the terrifying realisation that screaming louder won’t stop the runaway train.”
