A foreigner finds a penny on the ground. When he tries to offer it to a stranger — it sparks an absurd and frightening conversation about American “bad luck.” An unlikely group of strangers intersect in this unconventional comedy about navigating personal and national terrors. Who knew the ridiculous could be so terrifying?

About the Creator
Emily Zemba is a Brooklyn-based playwright, screenwriter and occasional puppeteer, hailing from Old Lyme on the Southeastern Connecticut shoreline. The recent production of Zemba's play Superstitions — as part of The Pool 2021 — was praised by New York Magazine as “Elegant and weird” and “a return to what Off-Off was originally for.” Some of Emily’s other plays include Deer and the Lovers (First Floor Theater), Clockwork (Local Lab), On Loss and Mice and Monsters and Love (LPAC), and Have You Been There (Rattlestick F*ck!ng Good Plays Festival).

Her work has been developed with places like Boston Court Pasadena, ANT Fest, Exquisite Corpse, Great Plains Theater Conference, Adam Mickiewicz Institute (Poland) and Two River Theater. She is an affiliated artist with New Georges and The Playwrights Center and a member of Society Theatre Company. Zemba's short film Out of Office was an official selection of the 2021 Chattanooga Film Festival (co-directed with Emma Wiseman).
