House of Lucky is a solo show written and performed by Frank Wortham. I directed the world premiere with Impact Theatre in 1998, the coproduction with The Marsh in 1999 (which was extended twice for a three-month run), and the Magic Theatre production in 2001. This show was a major hit in the Bay Area — it won awards, got amazing reviews, and sold out performance after performance.
“Josh Costello, Impact Theatre’s artistic director, has directed the show with tremendous attention to detail, and the characters are all vivid and well drawn, with the transitions between people rendered effectively. Wortham is a spellbinding performer…an artist to watch out for, and Impact Theatre, a group that aims to create theatre by and for the younger generations, is fast emerging as one of the most impassioned troupes in the Bay Area. You’ll be hearing more from both.”
