A new play by Jan Bolwell with Jan Bolwell, Sacha Copland and John Smythe.

The gripping story of an extraordinary and talented young woman who grew up in the shadow of her famous father, James Joyce.

The gaiety and creative energy of 1920s Paris, where Lucia Joyce trained to be a dancer, is recreated, by blending drama music and dance.

Diagnosed with schizophrenia, Lucia is supported in her illness by her friend and lover Samuel Beckett.

This is a fascinating exploration of what can happen to the talented child of a very famous parent, as she struggles for recognition and a sense of identity.
