The Red Barn a new play by David Hare, based on the novel, La Main, by Georges Simenon finishes its run in the Lyttelton Theatre on 17 January.
The great detective writer Georges Simenon escaped France at the end of World War Two, and arrived in the USA to start again. With his American wife, he settled at Shadow Rock Farm in Lakeville, Connecticut. Years later, he wrote La Main, a psychological thriller set in a New England farmhouse.
David Hare has took this novel and forged from it a startling new play that unfolds in Connecticut in 1969. On their way back from a party, two couples struggle home through the snow. Not everyone arrives safely.
The cast is Hope Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Elwyn, Stuart Milligan, Anna Skellern, Mark Strong, Oliver Wilson, Nigel Whitmey and Jade Yourell.
The Red Barn is produced in association with Scott Rudin.
