The Lucky Chance @ Island Shakespeare Festival (Whidbey Island) ☀️
Jul 19 @ 6:00 pm

If you’re looking to gamble on love with this multi-generational comedy featuring headstrong heroines and aging Romeos, consider this raunchy Restoration Comedy about sex, marriage, and consent. The ripened, spry, and sometimes lecherous Sir Cautious Fulbank and Sir Feeble Fainwou’d used their money and status to land young wives. But both wives had young suitors they already loved, who are trying to win them back. While the old men gamble, bribe, and swindle, the young suitors assume double identities, dance with a devil, and put their livelihoods on the line — with plenty of help from their crafty ladies. Delight in this unapologetic critique of capitalism and patriarchy while asking: are our motives in love and partnership ever truly altruistic?

The Lucky Chance, written by 17th-century novelist and playwright Aphra Behn, is ISF’s second partnership production with Expand the Canon. Directed by Julie Beckman.

Ticketed event, with sliding-scale and pay-what-you-choose tickets offered for all. Walk-up admission also available.

The Lucky Chance @ Island Shakespeare Festival (Whidbey Island) ☀️
Aug 23 @ 6:00 pm

If you’re looking to gamble on love with this multi-generational comedy featuring headstrong heroines and aging Romeos, consider this raunchy Restoration Comedy about sex, marriage, and consent. The ripened, spry, and sometimes lecherous Sir Cautious Fulbank and Sir Feeble Fainwou’d used their money and status to land young wives. But both wives had young suitors they already loved, who are trying to win them back. While the old men gamble, bribe, and swindle, the young suitors assume double identities, dance with a devil, and put their livelihoods on the line — with plenty of help from their crafty ladies. Delight in this unapologetic critique of capitalism and patriarchy while asking: are our motives in love and partnership ever truly altruistic?

The Lucky Chance, written by 17th-century novelist and playwright Aphra Behn, is ISF’s second partnership production with Expand the Canon. Directed by Julie Beckman.

Ticketed event, with sliding-scale and pay-what-you-choose tickets offered for all. Walk-up admission also available.
