What happens when you die? LUCY is a play that explores this. Through character relationships and personal struggles with addiction we follow a group of friends at a cabin, trying to escape the responsibilities waiting for them at home. But this weekend won’t be as calm as they expect.

Part 1 of LUCY will be presented live on March 5 at 9pm EST.
