The Two Faces of Agent Lacey is a play about theatrical agent Stephen Lacey and the relationships he has with his clients.
Many of them struggling with disillusionment in their acting careers, work anxiety, and personal economic insecurity. The successful relationships he's built with his clients over time are built on trust, and good business advice. With the ever increasing presence of social media forcing a different approach to business,
Lacey and his actors navigate their way into the twenty-first century in an attempt to utilise what twitter and its ugly sisters have to offer.
On the outside he plays his role of agent, friend, mentor and some time therapist with great conviction. On the inside it is a very different story. His long time client, the Palme D'or nominated Billy Lean is having a difficult time getting work and his jobbing theatre roles are tainted by some ever spiteful reviews thus dragging Billy down further into a pit of desperation.
Agent Lacey is forced to address his own corrosive part in his clients troubles when an ex girlfriend shows up keen to stage the story of their past. Having rehabilitated her own life she is determined to get those she was once close with to do the same. By turning her past into a stage play, how much does she blur the lines of fiction and reality? Is all memory just subjective? Her visit dictates that Lacey face some uncomfortable truths, setting both himself and Billy Lean free on to a clearer collaborative future path.
