Award-winning actress Laura Linney returns to Broadway in a haunting new solo play, My Name is Lucy Barton, adapted by Rona Munro from the bestselling novel by Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout.
Linney plays Lucy Barton, a woman who wakes after an operation to find – much to her surprise – her mother at the foot of her bed. They haven’t seen each other in years. During their days-long visit, Lucy tries to understand her past, works to come to terms with her family, and begins to find herself as a writer. This spellbinding story is directed by five-time Olivier Award winner Richard Eyre “with a keen-eyed compassion.” – The New York Times.
A sold-out sensation originally produced by the London Theatre Company at the Bridge Theatre in London, Ms Linney was hailed as “luminous” by the The New York Times, “genuinely phenomenal” by Time Out London, and the play was called “deeply affecting and heartbreaking” by The Observer.
