The stormy days last winter left David Penney housebound with hours to kill. Instead of sitting around, he settled in and wrote his first play.
“Things happen at a certain period of your life that you just don’t expect,” said Penney, who lives in Lunenburg. “I was sitting here on a January morning, and it was stormy and dark and I was by myself … so I started to write this.”
“Lomax” tells the story of Mr. Lomax, a criminal whose past has caught up with him, as he fools a group of locals into murdering an old enemy who is on his trail. Among those he deceives is Billy, a man suffering the early effects of Alzheimer’s in silence.
