Drama Play Script: 'Lucy In The Sky' by Tony Layton


Three women seek shelter in an inner city hostel for the homeless. On this cold winter night, each has a different reason for being there.

Alexia is pregnant following a rape, Meg has wreaked revenge on a brutal husband and has is a self-imposed exile, and with Wendy we see that sometimes all it takes to become an outcast is a sudden impulsive act - one that you regret forever.

This play, a prize winner in the Drama Association of Wales, One Act Play Writing competition 2000, is a sensitive portrayal of women with problems. Two of them are having to come to terms with recent events which have shattered their lives. The other cannot forget her failing because once a year for fifty years she has been vividly reminded.

This play doesn't pull any punches - it's life on the edge, and in the raw.
