Laura Linney is set to reprise her role in My Name is Lucy Barton at the Bridge Theatre's upcoming season.

Following a sold out run in June, she will return to Richard Eyre's production for 26 performances from January 23-February 16.

Rona Munro has adapted Pulitzer Prize-winning author Elizabeth Strout's book of the same name.

Linney performs the one-woman monologue about a woman who wakes up after an operation to find her estranged mother sitting at the end of her bed. The story follows her as she finds herself as a writer, coming to terms with her escape to New York from a traumatic rural childhood.

Linney and Eyre's previous theatre collaborations include a Broadway production of Arthur Miller's The Crucible.

In her four-star review, our critic Fiona Mountford said that Linney "gives a compelling 90-minute solo performance full of her nervous trademark smiles."

The Bridge Theatre's new season also includes Lucinda Coxon's adaptation of Harriet Lane's novel, Alys Always, starring Joanne Froggatt, and an immersive production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, directed by Nicholas Hytner.

Tickets go on sale on October 19, bridgetheatre.co.uk
