The National Theatre has released images of Hugo Weaving and Lesley Manville in rehearsal for their upcoming production of The Visit.
In the town of Slurry, New York, post-war recession has bitten. Claire Zachanassian, improbably beautiful and impenetrably terrifying, returns to her hometown as the world’s richest woman. The locals hope her arrival signals a change in their fortunes, but they soon realise that prosperity will only come at a terrible price.
The Visit opens in previews on 31 January and runs until 13 May.
