The Red Barn National Theatre

The National Theatre have today announced that Mark Strong and Hope Davis will star in David Hare's latest play The Red Barn, which runs at the Lyttleton Theatre from 6 October with an official opening on 17 October 2016.

Based on Georges Simenon’s novel 'La Main', a psychological thriller set in a New England farmhouse, Hare has taken this novel and created a new play directed by Olivier Award-winning Robert Icke. It will feature design by Bunny Christie, sound by Tom Gibbons and lighting design by Paule Constable.

"Connecticut, 1969. On their way back from a party, two couples struggle home through the snow. Not everyone arrives safely..."

Mark Strong returns to the London stage following his Olivier Award-winning and Tony nominated performance in the Young Vic's production of A View From The Bridge. Hope Davis will make her UK stage debut, following Broadway credits such as God of Carnage. Further casting is to be announced.

Tickets for the production, which is booking to 19 November, are now on sale.
