James Corrigan (Jack Absolute Flies Again, King Lear*), Doon Mackichan (Toast of Tinseltown, The Duchess), and Sara Powell (The Seagull, The Madness of King George) will join Kristin Scott Thomas and Lily James in the world premiere of Penelope Skinner's *Lyonesse*.

Directed by Ian Rickson, this new play will begin performances on 17 October to 23 December 2023 at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

BAFTA and Olivier-winning actress, Kristin Scott Thomas, will star as a reclusive but talented actress who disappears under mysterious circumstances. She is finally ready to tell her story after thirty years. Enlisting a young film director (Lily James) to help her with a magnificent comeback. But can we really control the stories we tell?

Lyonesse will be designed by Georgia Lowe, with lighting by Jessica Hung Han Yun, music by Stephen Warbeck, sound by Tingying Dong, and casting by Amy Ball CDG.
