My Brilliant FriendApril De Angelis' adaptation of Elena Ferrante's bestselling novel is re-worked for the Olivier Theatre following a sell-out run at the Rose Theatre Kingston with the entire original cast, including Niamh Cusack and Catherine McCormack, returning. The five-and-a-half-hour production spans 50 years and "combines an intimate study of female friendship with a panoramic picture of postwar Italy" (The Guardian). My Brilliant Friend is "a breathless, breathtaking love story" between two young women, the studious Elena and impulsiveLila. The two leads "are beyond praise" (The Guardian) with Cusack using her "natural likeability and vulnerability" (The Stage) as Lenu while McCormack's inner fury within Lila makes her "a fantastically complex anti-hero".

About National Theatre

Each year the three superb venues in the National Theatre put on a significant proportion of the world's best productions. From intimate character studies in the Dorfman Theatre, to grand spectacles in the Olivier, the National Theatre is the spiritual centre of the British theatrical tradition.
