At the end of January Woodcut by Gary Brashier premiered at the Lantern Theatre in Sheffield to great reviews. Lucy played the part of Helen, a PR consultant who was at a crossroads in her life. Below is the review from the Sheffield Telegraph:
Money, sex and jealousy are three of the main causes of marriage fractures. In writer and director Gary Brashier’s debut play, these powerful forces are truly centre stage.
The troubled marriage of emotionally damaged, high flying media type Helen is further rocked when she moves to London with her man of the earth, tree-surgeon husband Julian.
When Helen invites her new boss, Myles, to dinner the inevitable emotional hand grenade goes off.
Deliciously played with great timing by Chris Scott, Myles is a manipulative and truly odious character who also turns the heart of Helen’s work colleague, cannily played by Canan Cahit as Julian. Tom Farthing’s moods and emotions are often terrifying as he alternates between rage and love.
Lucy Wilkins as Helen is excellent with some great heart-wrenching scenes, Woodcut is a very promising debut by Gary Brashier
