Kristin Scott Thomas & Lily James to star in world premiere of ‘LYONESSE’ at the Harold Pinter Theatre

Sonia Friedman Productions (SFP) has announced that Kristin Scott Thomas and Lily James will star in the world premiere of LYONESSE, a searingly funny and passionate new play by Penelope Skinner, directed by Ian Rickson.

LYONESSE will play a strictly limited season at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End from 17 October to 23 December 2023.

Tickets go on sale at midday on Thursday 29 June 2023.

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, a young film executive (Lily James), 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?

LYONESSE will be designed by Georgia Lowe, with lighting by Jessica Hung Han Yun, music by Stephen Warbeck and sound by Tingying Dong.
