Lucy Lucy and Lucy Barfield Ed2016

Lucy Grace loves ‘The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe’. From the moment she first read it in 1996, to reaching the age of 26 and finally realising that Narnia wasn’t real, and that she’d probably never find a wardrobe leading to a patiently waiting faun. But this realization didn’t stop Grace from loving the book, it just made her want to find the magic of Narnia in the real world. The show sees Grace share the story of how she went in search of Lucy Barfield – the goddaughter of the book’s author C.S. Lewis, and the person to whom the book is dedicated. Brilliantly written and performed, this is a heart-wrenching story within a life-affirming show.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 29 Aug.
