Lucy is young, fresh-faced and feeling lucky. She also just lost her mother. Propelled by contingency, she is sent to live with her estranged father, Lothario and long-time lad Ricky Pense, infamous for his problematic dating show. Coping with loss is never easy, especially when it’s televised for national consumption. In this new world of TV artifice, Lucy must struggle to retain integrity as the lines between life and 'live!' begin to blur. Lucky is a new musical from the Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society about reality TV and the performance of emotion.
