“My name is Maurice Temerlain. I am a psychotherapist, and my daughter, Lucy, is a chimpanzee.”
That’s how my character opens the show. Based on true events, LUCY premiered at Dixon Place in New York City this year.
Lucy’s development was made possible by a grant by the Ensemble Studio Theater/Alfred P. Sloan Science and Technology Project and a space grant from the League of Independent Theaters. After our presentation at Dixon Place, there’s lots of momentum to continue in the development of the piece.
