Producer Paul Lucas Death – Dead | Passed Away – Obituary

Paul Lucas Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Paul Lucas.

Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.

This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.

Paul Lucas – The Artist. I met Paul Lucas, a tall handsome and somewhat flamboyant, American producer in Edinburgh in 2006 after seeing two of his shows, ‘What I Heard About Iraq’ and ‘The Be(A)st of Taylor Mac’ (co-produced with Gail Winar). Taylor was a life changing art work but it was ‘What I heard About Iraq ‘that bonded us from then on. I re-staged WIHAI with local creatives to become my first work as a professional director.

Paul and I became fast friends over discussions about theatre and the show and in 2007 when I started the HST Edinburgh Fringe Award he and Richard Jordan agreed to be judges and they remained by my side as it grew from strength to strength to become the success it is today. Paul would meet me in Edinburgh and see hundreds of shows calling and emailing with his thoughts on structure, performance, presentation and artistic merit and some years we would debate into the early hours over what shows should win. It was very sad not to have Paul by our side over the last few years seeing shows and in 2019 Gail Winar was kind enough to step in and be our USA contingency.

In 2014 I was lucky enough to be a part of the development of Trans Scripts, Part I: The Women written by Paul based on stories of people from around the world who identify as transgender. Trans Scripts became one of the most important pieces of theatre to be staged in the Edinburgh Fringe and in 2017 took out the coveted Scotsman Fringe First Award.

In 2020 Paul married the love of his life, soul mate and partner Kendall Messick in a private ceremony at their lake house.

Paul passed away peacefully last night after, as Kendall wrote “his courageous but ultimately unsuccessful battle with cancer.”

An artist whose creativity and passion infected those around him, Paul’s determination and resilience was unending and his fight for equality and the truth through the work he produced, supported, wrote and developed was and will always be inspirational.

I will miss you my friend, as will the world.

Our love and thoughts go out to Paul and Kendall’s family and friends as we remember a true artist and his life.

VALE Paul Lucas.

Love Martha and the HST Team.

Was saddened to hear of the passing of

Paul Lucas

He was such a beautiful and creative soul.
