When Lucy falls asleep, her dreams are disturbed by frightening noises and unseen terrors lurking in the dark. Step forward her own personal superhero, the Magnificent Captain Moth to save the day. But wait, what’s this? A superhero that’s afraid of the light? Unlike his insect counterparts, the ex-military Captain refuses to embrace the warm glow of Lucy’s night light and instead opts to wrap up warm in his dressing gown and hide in the shadows.
What is he scared of and why? In order to find out Lucy must leave the safety of her duvet, go into the darkness and find out his story. Can Lucy re-habilitate her hero and sleep soundly? Or will the darkness get the better of her? Come and find out in a play about how talking openly about our problems can help us write our own life stories.
