Lucille's play, Shift the Rain, explores how modern culture and gentrification permanently alters the fabric of a stronghold community in the Bronx. The play tells the story of Diamond and Lila- two best friends whose lives get turned around unexpectedly. Set in a community in the Bronx, the girls face a looming threat to their lives and the community they were raised in due to the inevitable consequences of gentrification. Diamond and Lila are limited to their imagination and stories of other neighborhoods who have been affected, to understand what this will mean for them.
