Summary

Six friends are interviewed by the police after the disappearance of Lucy Lime, the strange unnerving girl – ‘I am a walking Universe, I am’ – whom they met on the beach beneath the cliffs.

Adie likes Gary who likes Shelley who likes Adie. Relationships are strained as they ‘sort out what they can put up with, and what they can’t’ – under the shadow of a soldier on a Great War memorial.

Eclipse by Simon Armitage and Friendly Fire by Peter Gill were specially commissioned by the National Theatre for the BT National Connections Scheme for young people.

If we hope to have discerning practitioners and audiences tomorrow we must ensure that work of quality is available to young people now. The Connections series is designed to provide such work in easily accessible volumes.
