Based on the celebrated novels by Elena Ferrante, My Brilliant Friend is an epic story of love, violence, ambition and self-destruction. First meeting on the dangerous streets of postwar Naples, friends Lila and Lenu experience turbulent social and political change – even as life repeatedly tries to pull them in separate directions, they remain inextricably bound to one another.
Toby is creating a language of animated memories as the past and present of Lila and Lenu’s friendship unfolds onstage. This two-part adaptation runs from 12 November – 18 January and is directed by Melly Still with set and costume design by Soutra Gilmour. For more information and to book tickets click HERE
