The Lucky Chance by Aphra Behn - Poster

March 27 – April 5, 2020

Everybody’s trying to get ahead. Everybody’s trying to stay afloat. In Aphra Behn’s dark sex farce, money can always buy love – is luck enough to win it back? One way or another, someone’s getting screwed.

Two young women have married rich old men; what daring, ridiculous, and/or unethical measures will their boyfriends take to win them back? “This show contains multitudes,” says artistic director Rebecca Maxfield. “Just about every character is deeply, deeply stupid and there’s some amazing farce, but Behn also offers a really sharp feminist critique of misogyny and the system that forces women into marriage, and there are some genuine surprises in how that plays out.”
