Lyonesse tickets are on sale now for the show in London’s West End in 2023.
Starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Lily James , Lyonesse will begin performances at Harold Pinter Theatre on 17 October 2023 with tickets on sale now here.
The new piece by Penelope Skinner and directed by Ian Rickson will see Kristin Scott Thomas (Electra, Darkest Hour) starring as Elaine and Lily James (All About Eve, Pam & Tommy) as Kate.
Elaine a reclusive and talented actress, disappears in mysterious circumstances. 30 years later, she finally feels ready to tell her story – summoning Kate, a young film executive, to her remote Cornish home to assist with her glorious comeback.
But who really controls the stories we tell, and how we get to tell them? Will these women own their narrative, or will it be swept away from them at any given moment?
Kristin Scott Thomas said: “Working with Ian is one of the great joys of my professional life. And a new play is such an adventure. Penelope Skinner’s writing had me gripped from the first page. I love the questions the story raises. Acting with Lily is starting to become a habit. Luckily it’s good for everyone!”
Lily James commented: “I am thrilled to be joining this wonderful company. I have always wanted to work with Ian Rickson. When I received Penelope Skinner’s brilliant play, I read it in one sitting and adored it – I was utterly gripped by these strong, original characters.”
Lyonesse will play at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre from 17 October 2023 currently booking through to 23 December 2023.
