'I have lots of sons with nothing to inherit, Uncle Simone has no sons with lots to inherit.'
Sicily, summer 1916. Gossiping and singing, the women gather to harvest old Simone’s almond crop. He’s the richest landowner in the district but he has no heir. Local lad Liolà, untroubled by convention, has fathered three little boys, each with a different mother, and that only intensifies Simone’s anguish. When another of the girls falls pregnant, Simone is persuaded he might recognize the baby as his own. But he’s forgotten the charms of his slighted young wife Mita, who is not so easily crushed.
'All I should say, girls, is don’t be too sweet, lest you be eaten!'
Richard Eyre returns to the National Theatre to direct Liolà by Luigi Pirandello in a new version by Tanya Ronder. This high-spirited drama by Pirandello takes us to the heart of a rural community where property and family provoke fierce passions. Richard Eyre directs Tanya Ronder’s new version, performed by an Irish cast and gypsy musicians. It’s unexpected, funny and touching.
As part of the Travelex £12 season, 300 £12 seats have been made available for every night’s performance. We also have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky winner.
