The Lightbox





The Light Box is a tale of the human need for love, the sacrifices made to achieve this and the often tragic price that must be paid long after such love is consummated. 


When Ethel stabs talkative co-worker Annie with a spoon, she sets off a chain of events that will bring both women face to face with the past.  Ethel’s mother Lesley left the family after a torrid affair with a toucan; her father never recovered.  Now a grown woman,


Ethel’s violence lands her in an institution where she is watched over by The Man Made of Spoons, a genial if bumbling psychiatrist.  While in confinement, Ethel receives regular visits from a cleaner, and as their tentative friendship blossoms to romance, she begins to understand why her mother may have sacrificed so much for love. 


Meanwhile Annie tries to heal herself by rekindling an old relationship and forming a new one at the same time, but this risky endeavour will have fatal consequences for her.  While Annie seems destined to repeat the mistakes of her past, will Ethel be able to escape the weight of her own history?
