Bea, an older woman, comes out late in life. She nabs herself a young lover, Ellie, who has aspirations of starting a family and putting them both on a path to domestic bliss. Then Bea meets Jemima, who catches her eye and steels her away from Ellie. It all falls apart when Bea finally meets James, the boy beneath Jemima’s make-up, wigs and glamour, who doesn’t excite her quite as much.
Her Not Him marks Lughnacy Productions’ debut: a comedy drama exploring the things that keep us going in life, relationships that don’t fall under tidy labels, and the very human missteps we make when it comes to sexuality and sexual politics.
Lughnacy Productions is a new female-led theatre company of multi-disciplined artists, set up in 2017 to perform works with a female and LGBTQ focus.
