17 August 2023

Sonia Friedman Productions (SFP) is delighted to announce full casting for the world premiere of Lyonesse by Penelope Skinner, directed by Ian Rickson at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 17 October – 23 December 2023 www.lyonesseonstage.com.

James Corrigan, Doon Mackichan and Sara Powell will join the previously announced Kristin Scott Thomas and Lily James in this searingly funny and passionate new play.

Elaine (Kristin Scott Thomas) a reclusive and talented actress, disappears in mysterious circumstances. 30 years later, she finally feels ready to tell her story – summoning Kate (Lily James), 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?
