My Name is Lucy Barton

My Name is Lucy Barton

Unsteady after an operation, Lucy Barton wakes to find her mother sitting at the foot of her bed. She hasn’t seen her in years, and her visit brings back to Lucy her desperate rural childhood, and her escape to New York. As she begins to find herself as a writer, she is still gripped by the urgent complexities of family life.

Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout’s best-selling short novel, a haunting dramatic monologue, captivated readers in 2016.

Lucy Barton will be played by three-time Academy Award and four-time Tony nominee Laura Linney, making her London debut.
