Words by Kelley Rourke
Music by John Glover

The team that developed Guns N' Rosenkavalier in 2013 reunites for this world premiere!  Inspired by true events, Lucy conveys the powerful story of psychologist Maurice Temerlin who, along with this wife Jane, adopted a day-old chimpanzee in the sixties.  Naming her Lucy, their intention was to raise this chimpanzee "as much as possible as though she were a human being."  Lucy learned to dress herself, eat with silverware, make tea for guests, look at magazines, communicate through sign language, and enjoy cocktails. As Temerlin struggles to hold on to memories of a happy, albeit wildly unconventional, family life, documentation from the experiment challenges him to come to terms with the project's ultimate consequences.
