Kristin Scott Thomas (Electra, Darkest Hour) and Lily James (All About Eve, Pam & Tommy) will star in the world premiere of Lyonesse a searingly funny and passionate new play by Penelope Skinner (The Village Bike, Fresh Meat) and directed by Ian Rickson (Jerusalem, Uncle Vanya).  

Elaine (Kristin Scott Thomas) a reclusive and talented actress, disappears in mysterious circumstances. 30 years later, she finally feels ready to tell her story – summoning Kate, a young film executive (Lily James), to her remote Cornish home to assist with her glorious comeback.

Please note, the production is not able to guarantee the appearance of any specific actor due to illness or unforeseen circumstances.
