March 24 - April 29, 2018
A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere

by Meridith Friedman

directed by Co-Artistic Director
Jason A. Fleece

After the matriarch of the Hoffman family passes away, Richard is blindsided when his elderly father, Oscar, demands to leave his assisted living facility. With his sister Laura living in Shanghai, and Richard soon to become a first time father with his partner David, he is less than thrilled at the prospect of housing his–to put it mildly–difficult father. Accusations begin to fly and defenses are raised, drawing father and son, brother and sister, and spouses into a heated game of finger pointing with unintended consequences. The first in a trilogy of plays about the Hoffman family.

As part of a NNPN Rolling World Premiere, The Luckiest People will be produced by Curious Theatre Company in Denver, Colorado in May of 2017, then at Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina in August of 2017, and finally at Stage Left Theatre.

Opening: Thursday, 3/29 @8pm
Regular Run: Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays @8pm; Sundays @3pm
