My Brilliant Friend

My Brilliant FriendT1398603961
A two-part dramatization of Elena Ferrante's celebrated Neapolitan quartet of novels. This modern family saga chronicles 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. But even as life repeatedly tries to pull the two in separate directions, Elena and Lila remain inextricably bound to one another. A powerful story of love, violence, sex, ambition, genius and self-destruction, the two-part play is an exploration not just of female friendship and rivalry, but of Italy after the war and the decades of political turmoil and cultural change that followed.
Book by Elena Ferrante
Adapted by April De Angelis
