The Red Barn

The Red Barn

by David Hare

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. David Hare (Skylight, Pravda) has taken this novel, and forged from it a startling new play.
