"Summer of My Amazing Luck: The Play" is the story of Lucy and Lish, two single mothers who live in the Winnipeg housing project, Have-a-Life. When her mother was murdered, Lucy "didn't grieve properly," and tried to fill her emptiness with sexual encounters. When she became pregnant, she couldn't really say who the father of her child was. Now Lucy and her infant son Dill are in Have-a-Life, trying to survive in the welfare system. Her best friend Lish has her own troubles. She pines for Gotcha, the street performer who stole her heart along with her wallet. So, Lucy decides to bring Gotcha back in a series of postcards. But maybe Lucy's made it too real. When Lish gets a postcard telling her Gotcha is heading to Denver, she decides they have to find him. They set out in a borrowed, old, beat-up van, full of toys and kids. With all the humour, compassion, and intelligence of Miriam Toews' novel, this inventive stage adaptation takes audiences on a hilarious and heartbreaking journey as Lucy discovers that this may be the summer when everything changes.
