Getting a bit of fresh air to my brain…

Last month I was on a on a subsidised self-funded residency at Cove Park working on ideas for a new play.

Take a look at my photo diary on Instagram @lucyaverywrites or my blog to see how I got on.

To The Moon Theatre has commissioned me to write a script that will be developed into a multi-disciplinary performance piece exploring depression and the therapeutic process. Find out what happened at the exploratory workshop with my draft script here.


Where does inspiration come from?img_1649cropped

When I’m starting to work on a new project I always read other people’s plays to see what’s already been said on the topic and to inspire me to go further with my own ideas. In 2015 I challenged myself to read or see 1 play by a playwright I hadn’t looked at before each month to broaden my range of inspiration and influences.
Take a look at my blog series #12newplaywrightsin12months to hear about the plays I read and tips I picked up.


What they say about my work

‘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
