"The judges were wowed by its cinematic vision and attention to detail. Because the world of Lumin really does jump off the page, with many of the judges commenting on its contemporary theatricality. The sets and costumes are flushed in peach, there's fully formed lists of constitutions, Everything is so well fashioned it is almost difficult to believe that this cult came from a product of a writers imagination. But underneath all the thought and polish, lumin grapples with themes that speak to the here and now and it is about the very human desire for connection and community. 

When I read this play for the first time I was entirely captured by its twisting narrative, so much so that I couldn't put it down. With weirdly eery characters and the potential for darkness in every scene and lashings of the unexpected, Lumin is a strikingly eloquent and compelling journey for answers that will keep any audience enticed and breathless."

Anya Ryan, Guardian Theatre critic for Women's Prize for Playwriting.

The pigs are stressed, Liv won’t eat, and Ma wants everyone to follow the Constitutions. Set in a modern-day commune on the outskirts of the Chihuahuan desert in Texas, this new play about our need for community, asks why the line between delusion and what the rest of us believe, is getting blurrier than ever.
