From the playwright who brought us Happy
comes a whimsical comedy about love, aging, bad luck, and airport security. Sara's having a bad week. Really bad! The light bulbs in her apartment keep burning out; there's a leak in the roof; the aquarium is full of dead fish; the cat's gone AWOL, and her father -- who chased off her last beau -- is suspicious of Tom, their new neighbor, a TSA agent who just brought Sara home from the emergency room on New Year's Eve with a fractured fifth metatarsal. As Tom's attraction to Sara increases, he learns of the bizarre streak of bad luck that's been haunting Sara for years - twenty-two years to be precise.

"With 'Lucky Me,' Caisley, Barabas and company have crafted a meditation on the reality-altering toxicity of human relationships — and the ultimately winning ways of the heart — in a manner that’s fast-paced, funny, and occasionally fearsome." - Asbury Park Press, Read More
“Written in a snappy style reminiscent of Kaufman and Hart, Caisley populates Sara’s leaky apartment with a cast of loveable misfits … the greatest success of Caisley’s work—he never strays from his mission to allow the relationship between Tom and Sara to grow and develop organically. There’s not a whiff of theatrical artifice.” - Eugene Weekly, Read More
