Written and performed by Lynn Redgrave
Directed by Joseph Hardy
New York Premiere at NY City Center, Stage I.
Tony Award® and Academy Award® nominee Lynn Redgrave stars in her new play inspired by her need to create a life for her maternal grandmother, a woman she barely knew. NIGHTINGALE is a play about a promising woman stymied by society and all but erased by history, a touching personal tribute and a resounding song for all those people whose voices we’ve lost, or never known.
In the tradition of Shakespeare for My Father and The Mandrake Root comes Lynn Redgrave’s latest portrait of her legendary family.
