My Name is Lucy Barton
About My Name is Lucy Barton
Unsteady after an operation, Lucy Barton wakes to find her mother sitting at the foot of her bed. She hasn’t seen her in years, and her visit brings back to Lucy her desperate rural childhood, and her escape to New York. As she begins to find herself as a writer, she is still gripped by the urgent complexities of family life.
Lucy Barton will be played by three-time Academy Award and four-time Tony nominee Laura Linney.
Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout’s best-selling short novel, a haunting dramatic monologue, captivated readers in 2016.
Tell Me More
Performed by three-time Academy Award and four-time Tony Award nominee Laura Linney and based on the “deeply affecting” best-selling novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Elizabeth Strout, “My Name is Lucy Barton” is the epitome of a critically acclaimed play. The moving drama depicts the intimate struggle of a writer whose stay at the hospital challenges her sense of stability, leaving her reflecting the current state of her life. Everything shifts suddenly, however, when Lucy wakes to find her long-estranged mother sitting at the foot of her hospital bed.
Adapted for the stage by Rona Munro, “My Name is Lucy Barton” is a poignant rumination on fraught mother-daughter relationships and the challenge of repairing a long broken bond. Linney’s skillful performance affirms she has “mastered the art of public solitude and gives you the uncanny feeling that you are listening not to an invented story but a slice of lived experience,” according to The Guardian. Fair warning: Anyone attending this reprisal production may want to bring along a pack of tissues.
What To Watch For
- “My Name is Lucy Barton” premiered in June 2018 at the Bridge Theatre. The production marked Laura Linney’s debut on a London theatre stage.
- Elizabeth Strout’s novel was longlisted for the 2016 Man Booker Prize and shortlisted for the 2018 International Dublin Literary Award.
- Director Richard Eyre has won five Olivier Awards for directing as well as an Olivier Lifetime Achievement Award. The Independent call his work on “My Name is Lucy Barton” “exquisitely modulated.”
- “Amy and Isabelle,” Elizabeth Strout’s first novel, was a critical success and later adapted to a film for HBO. Her subsequent novel “Olive Kitteridge” was also made into an Emmy Award-winning HBO mini-series.

Your participation in any of the lotteries in the series is subject to our standard terms and conditions, which you can view here. The Promoter of this series of lotteries is TodayTix, Ltd.
This is a series of promotional prize draws and the term 'lottery'/'lotteries' is only used in a brand sense. No gambling is involved.
You can also join the lottery by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or mailing an envelope to TodayTix, Studio 2, 123 Curtain Road, EC2A 3BX with your name, phone number and email address enclosed, along with the performance you would like to be entered for and number of tickets (maximum 2 per person). One entrant per letter, which must be received 1 business day before the performance.
You must reside in the UK and be aged 18 or older to enter any of the lotteries in the series. Any entries made from outside the UK will be subject to UK law.
No purchase is required to enter but if you win you will need to pay for each ticket.
You can earn one extra entry into the same lottery that you have entered if you share the auto-filled post on Facebook and another if you share the auto-filled post on Twitter.
All winners are drawn at random by a computerised process.
There are a limited number of discounted price tickets available as prizes for each lottery in the series, which are always drawn in two stages:
- All tickets available are drawn at random and assigned to winners
- If a winner declines or fails to claim their tickets within an hour, these tickets will be re-assigned at random to another entrant
Choosing to enter for either 1 or 2 tickets holds no bearing on your chances of being drawn as a winner.
When the winners are drawn for each lottery in the series, the same computer process will be used to randomly select "reserve" winners, as described in section 7 above (i.e. those who selected an individual ticket upon entry could become a "reserve" winner if one or more of the winners in stage 1 of the draw do not claim their respective ticket). If you are a "reserve" winner and the original winner does not claim the tickets, you will be sent an email 3 hours before the relevant performance to let you know that you’ve been assigned as a winner. All replacement winners are selected from the drawn "reserve" at random.
TodayTix takes no responsibility for undelivered ‘winner’ emails or push notifications.
Please note that your entry into a lottery for the chance to purchase 1 or 2 discounted price tickets for a particular performance will not be rolled-over to any lottery for another performance.
Tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded.
Employees and their immediate families of the Promoter, its agents or anyone professionally connected with the Promoter are not able to enter.
