Based on actual events, and set in the early nineteenth century, The Coast of Illyria is a poignant dramatic comedy about art, addiction, mental illness, and the enduring bond between brother and sister. When Mary Lamb returns home from an infamous London asylum where she’s been confined since murdering her mother, her adoring younger brother Charles must decide whether he will marry the love of his life, the stylish young actress Fanny Kelly, or remain by Mary’s side in case her illness returns.
