Lux is an original OTC production, written and directed by Sam Morris.
The play takes place in a dystopian world, posing questions that parallel the ones we face today.
How will we remember those times in the dark?
How will we emerge from this place?
What will we become?
People live in the dark. The surface isn’t safe. Light is currency.
At its heart, Lux is a ‘what if’ story. By taking a simple step away from money as currency, familiar situations can be examined anew.
The play follows Gabe – a recovered drug addict – trying to make good on his past. But, in doing so, he ruins his chances of success. Instead, Gabe stumbles upon a hidden world where those deemed useless by society can find hope, and the promise of a brighter future.
It’s a play about escape, dealers and addicts, attempts at redemption, and what it means to have value.
