My Name Is Lucy Barton (Dramatic Production)
Narrated by Laura Linney / 1 hour 25 minutes
“At just an hour and a half, My Name Is Lucy Barton, performed by Laura Linney delivering her captivating stage performance of Elizabeth Strout’s novel, should be experienced straight through. I dared not pause this captivating audio experience; it would have felt like putting a friend on hold when she was sharing her deepest confidences.”Cheryl, Market Block Books
Presenting an original audiobook performance of the stage production of My Name is Lucy Barton, starring Academy Award and Tony nominee Laura Linney.
Praised as "deeply affecting" and "heartbreaking" by The Guardian (UK), this is a faithful adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Elizabeth Strout's bestselling novel of the same name.
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. As she begins to find herself as a writer, she is still gripped by the urgent complexities of family life.
Published as the play comes to Broadway after a highly-acclaimed UK run in 2018, this is a unique opportunity to hear Laura Linney's "simply superb" (The Times UK) performance of this haunting, dramatic monologue.
MY NAME IS LUCY BARTON was originally produced by Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr for the London Theater Company at the Bridge Theatre in June 2018. Produced on Broadway by the Manhattan Theater Club, Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director, Barry Grove, Executive Producer and The London Theater Company, in association with Penguin Random House Audio.
