She studied Performing Arts at Middlesex University, later working extensively with legendary theatre maker Ken Campbell, including performances at the Royal Court in Décor Without Production. She performed in Canada with the famous Die Nasty company in their annual Soap-a-thon (a non-stop 53-hour improvised play), and in 12 subsequent UK impro marathons (most recently as Jenny Agutter at The Lost Theatre). She also played Ophelia in Hamlet: A Travestie at the Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds.

Trodd en Bratt is Lucy’s double act with fellow Showstopper, Ruth Bratt. Following their 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show Well Done You (also at Soho Theatre), they were commissioned to write and perform a series for BBC Radio. They were finalists for series 1 in the BBC Audio Awards 2015 (series 2 airs in November). Metro described it as a ‘potpourri of the weird, the wonderful and the downright demented, held together by winning onstage chemistry’.

Radio credits: Well Done You series 1 and 2 (writer/performer), Chat Show Roulette and Showstopper! (all BBC Radio 4). @troddenbratt
