Lucian Willow has a dark past; so dark he can’t remember it. Twenty years after the end of the Second World War, a former Army Chaplain lives in a state of amnesia on his old comrade Lord Brook’s country estate, deep in the slumbering fields of England. The arrival of a circus from across the channel – with its anarchic forces of magic and comedy – impels these wounded men to confront their horrifying and entangled past.
Written in verse and prose, Lucifer Saved is described as an astonishing interweaving of modern story and Christian myth, of tragedy and comedy, by one of the UK’s foremost verse playwrights.
Lucifer Saved opened at the Finborough Theatre, London in October 2007
