Six friends are interviewed by the police after the disappearance of Lucy Lime, the strange unnerving girl - "I am a walking Universe, I am" - whom they met on the beach beneath the cliffs.

Adie likes Gary who like Shelley who likes Adie. Relationships are strained as they "sort out what they can put up with, and what they can't" - under the shadow of a soldier on a Great War memorial.

Eclipse by Simon Armitage and Friendly Fire by Peter Gill were specially commissioned by the Royal National Theatre for the BT National Connections Scheme for young people.
