Director – Lucy, Lucy and Lucy Barfield

written and performed by Lucy Grace

at Pleasance Below, 3rd-29th August

Narnia doesn’t exist. Lucy’s just realised. She’s 26.

She’s still reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. If the adventures of heroine Lucy Pevensie can’t help, then perhaps C. S. Lewis’s dedication to his god-daughter, Lucy Barfield, holds the key to another wardrobe.

Following 2015’s Garden ‘quietly revolutionary’ **** (Scotsman) Lucy Grace searches for the lives of Lucy: past, present and fantasy.

Unpicking a life less documented Lucy, Lucy and Lucy Barfield, is an intimate show about holding on to adventure, falling through the cracks and finding your own way back.

Director – Garden

written and performed by Lucy Grace

at Pleasance Theatre, London, 5-7 May 2016, then touring

Monday to Friday, Lucy catches the 8am train to London Bridge.

9am, her day begins at Insignia Asset Management, where she is in charge of the photocopier, printer, scanner, shredder and binder. She is the only person in the office who knows how to clear a paper jam.

She’s starting to wonder how this fits into the Grand Scheme of Things.

One day, her life takes an unexpected turn when she rescues the long-suffering office pot plant.

In her flat, 24 floors up, she begins to plant, cultivate and nurture her own personal wilderness.

Garden is a humorous and poetic story about trying to form a meaningful connection to the world, when you feel out of step with everyone else in it.
