WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Luke has recently taken his hand to writing and directing, having done so with the play ‘Disassociation’ which was performed at The Lowry in 2013. Speaking of his first project, he said ‘I think there’s a lack of strong writing for young people, for people aged 18-25 there’s nothing much on TV or theatres that is ‘for them’. I hope that this production will bring a whole new audience to the theatre.’
