Tanya Ronder's English version of Luigi Pirandello's 19th century Neapolitan drama is directed by Richard Eyre at the National Theatre this summer. The main character, Liola, is untroubled by the traditions of his community, which seems to be governed by heightened passions and issues of property and kinship. He considers himself a free spirit. Performed by an Irish cast and gypsy musicians, the drama is funny yet touching.

About National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre

The Lyttelton is one of three theatres which make up the National Theatre. It was built in a proscenium style, but has thoroughly modern sightlines and acoustics. There really is no bad seat here as there are no circle rails or view-blocking pillars. More about National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre
