The Lucky Few
a play with music by Todd Almond & Kate DouglaS
The Lucky Few is an intimate play with music about two strangers from different generations grappling with nostalgia, expectation and cheap cigarettes. On New Year’s Eve 1959, a war veteran and a singer meet at a VFW Dance. After both are left stranded when their pasts catch up with them, the two pass the night in the empty dance hall discussing what happens now.
The Lucky Few has been developed in part at SPACE on Ryder Farm and The Orchard Project.
