Haunting Julia – Alan Ayckbourn
Directed by John Miles
Show dates: 4th - 8th June 2019
Why should a musical genius, with a glittering career in orchestral composition ahead of her, commit suicide?
Julia Lukin, ‘Little Miss Mozart’, was a prodigy, driven by her relentless need to compose. She found little comfort in the more mundane pleasures of life, unable to form relationships with anybody (or anything) other than her music.
Her doting father, Joe, buys the student house where she died and opens ‘The Julia Lukin Centre’ as a music academy and museum, but more as a shrine to the daughter he idolised.
Inviting Gary, Julia’s ex-boyfriend who had found her body, and Ken, a psychic, to attempt to answer the many questions haunting Joe, this contrived meetingreveals some disturbing aspects of Julia’s tormented life.
A taut mystery from a highly experienced cast, set in the very room where Julia took her own life, twelve years ago.
‘Haunting Juila’ by Alan Ayckbourn. Directed by John Miles. Teignmouth Players at The Ice Factory Studio Theatre. 4-8th June. At 7.30pm. No matinee.01626 778991
