As it unfolds in a series of fluidly written scenes, "Luce" hugs tightly the ambiguity of Luce's behavior.

Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

Closed 17 Nov 2013

The play follows Luce - adopted into an American family from his war-torn home in the Congo when he was just a young boy. When Luce reaches his teens, he's a grade-A student excelling in his high school studies. However an alarming discovery made by his teacher reveals that he may not be the model son his parents had always thought he was and forces them the reevaluate their idealized image of their adopted son.

Luce is a brand new play by playwright JC Lee and this play marks his first production at the LCT. The play stars Marin Hinkle, Neal Huff and Okieriete Onaodowan.
