When a teacher makes an alarming discovery about Luce (played by Okieriete Onaodowan), an all-star high school student, Luce's parents (played by Marin Hinkle and Neal Huff) are forced to reckon with their idealized image of their son, adopted years ago from a war-torn African country.
LUCE marks JC Lee's professional playwriting debut. He is a recent graduate of the Lila Acheson Wallace American Playwrights Program at the Juilliard School and was a 2011-12 writing fellow at The Playwrights Realm. His plays have been in various stages of development throughout the United States at such theaters as South Coast Rep, the Magic Theatre, and the Williamstown Theatre Festival.
