Southwark Playhouse, 2016

Amy’s son is perfect: star athlete, academic highflyer and high school hero. So why are there lethal explosives in his locker?

Luce is about the fear of homegrown terrorism. Set in an ordinary American town, but addressing anxieties that are growing throughout the Western world, it raises troubling questions about parenting, education and racism. Do we ever really know our children? Why must they be perfect? And where do the springs of violence lie? 


Gripping, funny, fast-paced and profoundly disturbing, Luce marked the arrival in the UK of a startling new voice.
