Prandello’s Liolà makes its way to the Lyttelton National Theatre in a new version by Tanya Ronder. Whilst the original version took place in Naples the new edition employs an Irish cast and gypsy musicians to add a new spin on the classic story of a man living his life his own way and without the shackles of tradition.
Under the direction of Richard Eyre, Liolà will introduce audiences to the title character, a middle aged man whose life has gone in an unusual direction. He is a single father who has chosen this lifestyle for himself by fathering children from different mothers and now he sets out to create more offspring whilst also trying to sell one of his others. In the play we explore a small community all with their passions stirred by transpiring events.
Rory Keenan portrays Liolà onstage amongst other cast members such as Lisa Dwyer Hogg and James Hayes and it heads to the National on South Bank almost a century since the original version was first penned in 1916.
Alongside shows such as The Amen Corner and Othello (both appearing on the Olivier stage), Liolà makes its way to the Lyttelton National Theatre for a run beginning on Saturday 7th August 2013 (previews from Saturday 31st July 2013).
