Lucy

Lucy
a world-renowned and much-respected anthropologist, Vivian is most comfortable in her world of quiet solitude, balking at even the smallest of interactions with the outside world. Her life is abruptly changed, however, when her ex-husband shows up and asks Vivian to reassume custody of their thirteen-year-old autistic daughter, Lucy, while he settles in with his new wife. Overwhelmed by the particulars of Lucy's care and unable at first to connect with her daughter, Vivian soon realizes that she and Lucy are more alike than she ever could have expected - a revelation that has powerful and disturbing consequences.

Notes:
Subsequently produced by The ensemble Studio Theatre (New York), And The Delaware Theatre Company (Wilmington).
