As Luck Would Have It – Development Showing

Sat 11 Sep

This show has been postponed.

Due to current public health restrictions, this show has been postponed.  The new performance date is TBC. We apologise for any inconvenience.

By Drew Fairley

As Luck Would Have It begins like a piece of stand-up, telling the hilarious clash between land and cruise ship logic. Then as we are banished from Australian waters, the play slides into a surreal parallel story of life and death. The machinations of desperation through the inner workings of the theatre itself are explored. It’s going to be a hilarious, adventurous, mysterious and bumpy ride. Exactly like your 2020 but on a ship and with wigs. A swirling, drum-rolling, horn-tooting theatrical odyssey.

As Luck Would Have It was commissioned by Merrigong Theatre Company.

Pay What You Feel

We want to make it easier to experience new works. So for this event there is no set ticket price. Instead, you simply reserve a spot, show up, then pay what you feel the performance is worth afterwards.

1. Reserve your spot for free.

Register and reserve your spot online.

If this is your first time, you will need to sign up. All you need is an email address and a credit or debit card (note – no money is charged to your card.)

2. See the show. 

You know this bit…

3. Pay what you feel. 

After the show, we’ll send you an email asking how much you want to contribute. You choose the amount based on your experience and your circumstances. There is no minimum or maximum amount.

Important: If you reserve a seat and don’t show up on the night, you will be charged a $20 no-show fee per seat. This ensures that the artists don’t miss out for their work.
