LEAVES by Lucy Caldwell
"We are where we come from?" That's not true. That's not true because if that's true there's no hope for any of us.
Lori is coming home from her first term at university. It’s only been a few weeks and already things have gone badly wrong. But none of the rest of the family knows, or understands, what really happened.
In this fiercely observed family drama, three teenage girls struggle to define who they are, and why, and where they might be going.
Lucy Caldwell is a young Belfast-born writer. She is the winner of the George Devine Award 2006 for Leaves, the premier award for new writing by an emerging playwright in the UK and Ireland. Leaves was also recently a joint winner of the 2007 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
