THE STORY: Her mother’s photographs turned Lacy into an icon of childhood innocence and beauty. Now, on the night of her 22nd birthday, Lacy has to navigate between image and reality, sex and friendship, self-indulgence and responsibility. This wild tragicomedy presents a portrait of a young woman held captive by her own childhood, and a vivid picture of a generation unable to grow up.
“A play by a gifted young playwright, about young people today…Astonishingly complex…” —Radar Redux.
“Alena Smith is a smashingly original young playwright as she demonstrates in the wildly talented The Lacy Project.” —John Guare.
