[Perspectives] The hospital reunion

“All happy families resemble one another, but each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way”. Leo Tolstoy’s opening line of his masterpiece Anna Karenina came to my mind after seeing the play My Name is Lucy Barton, directed by Richard Eyre at London’s Bridge Theatre. Based on Elizabeth Strout’s novel, the play is a monologue of a young woman, Lucy Barton, who is in hospital for 9 weeks after complications from an operation to remove her appendix. One day Lucy wakes up and she finds her estranged mother sitting near her bed.
