THEMES: Alienation, Bullying, abandonment
CHARACTER AGES: 10-13
Synopsis: Luke is smart, funny, shy and highly imaginative – but has no friends at school. In fact, he feels like he’s not even of the same species as the other kids in his class. But that isn’t surprising, because he’s not.
Luke’s father (whom he has never met) came from a distant planet - which makes Luke half human, half alien. He’s an ‘alienoid’. Which explains a lot, thinks Luke. This delightful new play for actors aged between 10 and 13 is the winner of the 2013 ATYP Foundation Commission. Fresh from the imagination of AFI and Logie Award-winning writer John Armstrong, Luke Lloyd: Alienoid speaks to the little bit of alien in all of us.
