“Tina has his strength. Vita has his tongue. Francesca has his spirit.” So speaks Ludovica about her daughters in Meghan Kennedy’s Napoli, Brooklyn. Take a first look at those daughters in our production gallery, then book you tickets for the show’s London run at Park Theatre.
The drama runs at the Finsbury Park venue from 13 June to 13 July 2019.
Napoli, Brooklyn is the story of an Italian-American family in 1960. It explores the struggle in immigrant families which is passed down from generation to generation, particularly for women. Set in Brooklyn, it’s a story of strong women taking risks to define a generation as they are forced to confront their conflicting visions for the future in this gripping, provocative portrait of love in all its danger and beauty.
Meghan Kennedy’s play was first staged by Roundabout Theatre Company at the Laura Pels Theatre, New York two years ago. This new production is the drama’s European premiere. The coming-of-age tale, which follows the plight of three sisters, was inspired by her own mother’s incredible story. The Original Theatre Company production has been touring since early May.
Lisa Blair directs this production, which features a cast including Georgia May Foote, Hannah Bristow, Mona Goodwin, Gloria Onitiri, Stephen Hogan, Robert Cavanah, Madeleine Worrall and Laurie Ogden.
Napoli, Brooklyn is part of a Park Theatre summer season that also includes, satire on the entertainment industry An Actor’s Nightmare, historical drama The Time of our Lies and Eugene O’Hare’s The Weatherman.
