Catherine returns to the stage in April De Angelis’s stage adaptation of the best-selling novel, My Brilliant Friend. The production, directed by Melly Still, opens at The Rose Theatre in Kingston on 25 February and plays until 2 April

My Brilliant Friend is a modern family saga chronicling the lives of friends, Elena and Lila, following them from their childhoods in a poor, tough neighbourhood of Naples, through passionate love affairs, burgeoning careers and family struggles. This stage adaptation condenses Ferrante’s four novels (My Brilliant Friend, The Story of a New Name, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, The Story of the Lost Child) into one play presented in two parts. Audiences will be able to see both parts in one day, or on separate days.
