Presents

LUCY, by Damien Atkins
Director: Brian Moore
Producer: Steve Wolfer

A play about a girl with autism and the relationship between her and her mother.
Reluctantly, Vivian agrees to care for Lucy, although motherhood is something that she never desired. Overwhelmed by the particulars of Lucy’s care and unable to connect with her daughter at first, Vivian soon realizes that Lucy isn’t that different from her “socially awkward, emotionally withholding, and reclusive “ self, and slowly comes to believe that she and Lucy are the next step in the evolutionary chain. A powerful play about the relationship between mother and daughter, the power of love, and the rare moments in life when something, or someone, comes along and forces us to re-evaluate our own lives and the way we respond to the world around us.
