Branching out into new work and new forms
I have two new projects in development! Both feature strong female characters trying to find their real selves with varying degrees of success. Both have a fantastical bent. Take a look at these new projects here.
‘Lucy Avery’s work is untamed, imaginative, surreal, visual, a thought-provoking creative adventure’. -Cecily Boys, artistic director of Old Bomb Theatre Company
I love theatre that provokes, questions and imaginatively explores the human experience. The stage can take you anywhere.
Audiences have described my work as surreal, lyrical, brave, beautiful and magic realist in style. I like to take the audience on an adventure delving into complex stories, treating them in an imaginative way.
My plays have been performed at New Diorama Theatre, King’s Head Theatre, Theatre503, Omnibus Theatre, Brockley Jack Studio Theatre, Camden People’s Theatre and The Actor’s Temple. Check out my plays here.
‘Lucy’s writing explores important and often ignored ideas and pushes us to answer difficult and complex questions about society and its constructs’. –Jennifer Lunn, artistic director of Culturcated Theatre Company
‘Lucy goes into the darkest places of our thoughts and obsessions but never exploits them for the sake of sensationalism, preferring instead to create empathetic characters with strengths and vulnerabilities which contribute an explanation of their ‘faults’ . -Sharon Burrell, artistic director of To The Moon Theatre
