"Lucky Me is pleasing mixture of great sitcom and vintage Neil Simon with a dash of Aaron Sorkin."  -New Jersey Stage

A bizarre streak of bad luck has been haunting Sara Fine for 22 years. The light bulbs keep burning out, the aquarium is perpetually full of dead fish, and her blind, elderly father chases away all of her boyfriends. A whismical romantic comedy and a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere.
