The Lovely Bones is one of the best plays I’ve seen this year. In fact, Melly Still’s vital production is the best page to stage adaptation I’ve seen since Curious Incident.
You’re riveted from the very first second of The Lovely Bones. Shocking, horrifying and heart-wrenching this remarkable 100-minute stage adaptation of Alice Sebold’s international best-seller is nothing short of a masterpiece.
Bryony Lavery – no stranger to dangerous topics after her unsettlingly brilliant Frozen – adapts Alice Sebold’s novel The Lovely Bones for this first stage version, directed by Melly Still.
The world premiere of The Lovely Bones, one of the bestselling novels of the 21st century and now adapted for the stage by Bryony Lavery and directed by Melly Still, will open at Royal & Derngate, Northampton on 1 September 2018.
