"brilliant, witty and insightful"  -New Jersey Stage

Robert Caisley’s new romantic comedy Lucky Me introduces Sara Fine, a nice woman with rotten luck.  After years of randomly burnt-out light bulbs, hockey pucks flying through the window, leaking roofs, dying goldfish and mysteriously injured love interests, she has finally met someone who is ready to confront her luck and win her heart.  The last hurdle is her cantankerous roommate—her father. 

Featuring Jennifer Fawcett, Patrick DuLaney, Ron Clark and Tim Budd in this National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere.

Join us on opening night Fri 1/30 or Sun 2/01 and get a chance to talk with the playwright, Robert Caisley during his visit to Iowa City!
