"Inner demons manifest themselves when they're least welcome, often to funny results."
By Lucinda Breeding - Reporter - Denton Record Chronicle
"Lucy Dreaming is a witty, creative piece that really emphasizes the struggles of an insomniac. Perfect length and very well written."
By Greta Wolking - Actor - SWAN (Support Women Artists Now)
"Lucy Dreaming is a beautifully haunting and wonderfully dark joyride into the human psyche. In the 3 years and 400 plus scripts I read, Lucy Dreaming was one of my favorites of all."
By Michael Haddad - Producer Director - Hovey Players
Given the experimental dream-like nature of this script, directors, designers, and actors have the utmost flexibility in their artistic choices. This play may be performed with no technical elements: no set, no props, no costumes, no sound effects, and no special lighting. On the other hand, LUCY DREAMING may be as multifaceted as creativity and resources allow. The set may be a bedroom or an abstract representation of the subconscious. Props might include long sheets of fabric, flashlights, alarm clocks, or visual representations of Lucy’s drifting thoughts. The costumes may be pajamas or something more surreal, perhaps flowing gowns that accentuate movement and lighting effects. The actors may be dressed identically or in contrast. Sound effects may be pre-recorded or created live by the actors or crew. Special effects might include projected imagery, gobos or other unusual lighting, or fog machines. You may choose to utilize movement, dance, mime, mask, or puppetry. The role of LUCY 2 may be cast as a single person or a chorus of voices and bodies. If more than one actor is cast as LUCY 2, LUCY 2’s lines may be spoken in unison, divided up, or a combination thereof.
