from an original work by Georges Simenon
Connecticut, 1969. On their way back from a party, two couples struggle home through the
snow. Not everyone arrives safely.
The great detective writer Georges Simenon escaped France at the end of World War Two, and arrived in the USA to start again. With his American wife, he settled at Shadow Rock Farm in Lakeville. Years later, he wrote La Main, a psychological thriller set in a New England farmhouse.
Adapted by David Hare as The Red Barn, the play premiered at the National Theatre, London, in October 2016.
