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.

Overview

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.

Critic reviews

Laura Linney delivers an acting masterclass in this monologue about mothers and the complexities of family life

The Stage

This is special. A monologue that feels like a dialogue; a story that doesn't quite conform to any rules of narrative yet holds you in its dreamlike grasp; a magical performance

WhatsOnStage

Laura Linney gives a compelling 90-minute solo performance full of her trademark nervous smiles

Evening Standard

Linney, as a performer, has mastered the art of public solitude and gives you the uncanny feeling that you are listening not to an invented story but a slice of lived experience

The Guardian

This play tugs at the heart. Her name may indeed be Lucy Barton but, in some ways, she is everywoman

The Times

Laura Linney is brilliant in her UK stage debut

Time Out

Laura Linney is luminous in this one-woman show
