Adapted for the stage by director Ivo Van Hove, Who Killed My Father is an anger-soaked letter by critically acclaimed writer Édouard Louis to his father. 

Returning home to the small, conservative town in the north of France where he grew up as a gay teenager, a son finds his dying father virtually unrecognisable from years of alcoholism, social deprivation and gruelling manual labour. He starts to wonder: who is responsible?

Who Killed My Father is a furious indictment of the political elite and a son’s declaration of love.

A merciless and moving portrait.' - de Volkskrant ★★★★  

‘Intense and beautifully played by Kesting'. - Telegraaf ★★★★

It is translated, adapted and directed by Ivo van Hove, after the book by Édouard Louis, performed by Hans Kesting with scenography and lighting by Jan Versweyveld, costumes by An D’Huys and music by George Dhauw.
