The Rise and Fall of Lucky the Clown (Rehearsed Reading)

Presented by Siôn Eifion

Fashioning an oddly shaped red nose and having had no support or opportunities as a child, Lucky’s name is ironic at best. Hungry and homeless, he finds himself sleeping rough on the doorstep of a relentlessly ambitious entrepreneur; A hard working, insistent man, who goes by the name of Hugh Salt. 

Overwhelmed by Hugh’s unforgiving nature, in an unforgiving world, it looks as though all hope is lost for Lucky.  Until one day, he finds a large bag filled with an endless amount of money. A bag that seems to have been ‘misplaced’ by a seemingly supernatural social worker called Angel.

And so, we begin on a fun yet tragic journey. A journey in which we learn what Lucky is really made of… who he could have been, and could still be. And more importantly, how did he become homeless in the first place?  

With the help of his newly appointed guardian angel, what kind of man will he turn out to be? Will he earn Hugh’s respect, and of judgment, be free? How high will he rise, how hard will he fall? Is Lucky the clown a clown after all?
