If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry. That’s Laura Curnick’s mantra anyway. Stand-up comic, her career is taking off, until she melts down on stage, confronted by the fact that she can’t have kids.

In London theatre, Opinion, Plays, Reviews by Daniel PerksLeave a Comment

Lucy Pevensie, Lucy Barfield and Lucy Grace – fictional child, real-life muse and storyteller, Lucy Grace embodies all three in Lucy, Lucy and Lucy Barfield. It’s inspired by a magical tale that has captured the minds of millions of children around the world, the escapism that comes from wishing to walk through a wardrobe and discover a whole new world full of magic and mystery.
