Lucy’s latest play THE EFFECT won best new play at the Critic’s Circle Awards. It played at the National Theatre directed by Rupert Goold and co-produced with Headlong in the winter of 2012 to superb reviews. Lucy was selected as a finalist for the 2013-14 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
Lucy is under commission to the Royal Court and writing a drama for the BBC with Tiger Aspect.
She was also Head Scene Writer for Bungie’s hugely successful video game, DESTINY, and in 2015 she wrote and shot a pilot for HBO with Sarah Silverman.
Her play, ENRON, transferred to The West End and Broadway in 2010 after sell out runs at both The Royal Court and Chichester Festival Theatre. Lucy is currently adapting it for Sony Pictures. In addition to the critical acclaim it has received, ENRON also won the award for Best New Play at the TMA Theatre Awards, and was shortlisted for The Evening Standard Award and Olivier Award for Best New Play.
‘Michael Frayn did it with quantum mechanics, Simon McBurney did it with maths, now Lucy Prebble has done it with accounting. She and her director Rupert Goold have achieved the remarkable feat of making fiendish corporate fraud not just comprehensible to the layman but also dramatically exhilarating’.
