From the creators of The Beauty Queen of Leenane and Expelled, How Now Brown Cow Productions present the Broadway and West End Smash Hit Play My Name Is Lucy Barton for its official South African Premiere Production.

My Name Is Lucy Barton follows the title character, who, unsteady after an operation, awakens to find her mother sitting at the foot of her bed. She hasn't seen her in years, and her visit brings Lucy back to 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 multiple award nominee Julie-Anne McDowell and directed by multiple award-winning Charmaine Weir-Smith.

“Deeply affecting, heartbreaking. … immersed in the nuances of human relationships, weaving family tapestries with compassion, wisdom and insight.” The Observer
