Have you heard about Sarah Milton’s new play Lucy Light? The world premiere production continues at Theatre N16 in Balham, south London, until 7 October 2017 only. A selection of some of our favourite review quotes is gathered below – as well as social media buzz around the show and full gallery of production shots…
Lucy Light tells the story of Jess and Lucy. Starting when they’re ﬁfteen, the play maps the journey of Lucy’s decision to have a premature bilateral prophylactic mastectomy (removal of both breasts).
We follow the girls from ages ﬁfteen to twenty-six, as they develop as women, deepen their understanding of their own identities, and battle with Lucy’s knowledge of the likelihood that she will develop breast cancer.
Lucy Light stars Bebe Sanders and, making her professional debut, Georgia May Hughes. The play is directed by Theatre N16 artistic director Scott Ellis and produced by Jamie Eastlake for Eastlake Productions. Sarah Milton‘s previous plays include Tumble Tuck.
The play is being presented in association with, and in aid of, The Eve Appeal, the only UK national charity raising awareness and funding research into the five gynaecological cancers – ovarian, womb, cervical, vaginal and vulval – and also run a BRCA Protect research clinic. The Eve Appeal was set up to save women’s lives by funding ground-breaking research focused on developing effective methods of risk prediction, earlier detection and developing screening for these women-only cancers. September is Gynae Cancer Awareness Month.
