The Lucky Few
book, music & lyrics by Todd Almond & Kate DouglaS
The Lucky Few is an intimate dreamfolk musical about two strangers from different generations grappling with nostalgia, expectation and the possibility of life on Mars. On New Year’s Eve 1959, a war veteran and a conspiracy theorist 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 the future could hold.
The Lucky Few has been developed in part at SPACE on Ryder Farm and will continue its development this summer at The Orchard Project.
