Lomax in the Lighthouse Now


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.
