Witness this modern classic psychological thriller that takes you right inside the heart and mind of the perpetrator. Based on a fascinating true crime that took place in 1949, Arts Hub called L'amante Anglaise (The Lovers of Viorne) 'a magnificent and quietly dramatic production'.
Pierre (Rob Meldrum) and Claire Lannes (Jillian Murray, in her Green Room award-winning role) are ordinary human beings leading everyday lives until a gruesome catastrophe occurs. In simple conversation, they effortlessly reveal the beauty and brutality of their inner selves, and create a painstaking portrait of lost passion.
