Set 60 miles west of New Orleans on Christmas Eve in 1934, The Lucky Spot follows a band of down on their luck ne’er-do-wells (including a charismatic gambler and his estranged wife, a passionate beauty just released from the penitentiary) and their desperate dreams to turn an old house into the hottest new taxi-dancing emporium in Louisiana. A charming, tender and very funny play by Beth Henley, who won the Pulitzer Prize for her previous play, Crimes of the Heart.
