The Lantern follows up our Barrymore Award-winning production of Skylight with another modern masterpiece by one of Britain's most influential playwrights. Experience David Hare's intimate, electrifying writing in this unexpected love triangle. Frances, a successful author, takes the late ferry to a remote cottage on the Isle of Wight to find Madeleine, a retired curator, near-recluse...and her ex-husband's mistress. Frances is chasing a story - the same story Madeleine might be running from. Eavesdrop on two witty, sexy women of a certain age as the night unfolds its secrets and they discover a shared past. NOTE: There will be onstage smoking during the performance.
