She will be reunited with director Richard Eyre after collaborating on The Crucible (Virginia Theatre, 2002) and 2008 film The Other Man, to star in a stage adaptation of best-selling novel My Name is Lucy Barton at the Bridge Theatre.
Elizabeth Strout's 2016 book revolves around ideas of recovery, reunion and reconciliation. Told by the titular Lucy Barton from a future perspective, drawing on hindsight and the unreliability on memory, it looks at a five day period when our heroine finds herself hospitalized and confronted by her estranged mother. The wise, deeply touching story of self-discovery and family ties galvanized readers and topped best-sellers charts.
Playwright Rona Munro (The James Plays, National Theatre) adapts the prose into a monologue and former head of the National Theatre Richard Eyre directs.
My Name is Lucy Barton will be at the Bridge Theatre for a strictly limited three week run so we recommend booking promptly to avoid disappointment.
