John Armstrong’s Luke Lloyd: Alienoid was the winner of the 2013 ATYP Foundation Commission. This play speaks to the little bit of alien in all of us.
Luke is smart, funny, shy and highly imaginative – but has no friends at school. In fact, he feels like he’s not even of the same species as the other kids in his class. But that isn’t surprising, because he’s not.
Luke’s father (whom he has never met) came from a distant planet – which makes Luke half human, half alien. He’s an ‘alienoid’. Which explains a lot, thinks Luke.
Luke Lloyd: Alienoid was first produced by Australian Theatre for Young People in Studio 1, The Wharf, Sydney, on 15 October, 2014
