Manhattan Theatre Club has announced it will present the American premiere of the London Theatre Company production of My Name Is Lucy Barton, directed by Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal). Laura Linney (The Little Foxes) will star in Rona Munro's adaptation of Elizabeth Strout's bestselling novel.

Linney, according to a press release, "plays Lucy Barton, a woman who wakes after an operation to find — much to her surprise — her mother at the foot of her bed. They haven't seen each other in years. During their days-long visit, Lucy tries to understand her past, works to come to terms with her family, and begins to find herself as a writer."

The creative team will include Bob Crowley (scenic and costume design), Peter Mumford (lighting design), John Leonard (sound design), and Luke Halls (projection design).
