Lucky One, The
The Lucky One by A.A. Milne is a serious comedy about sibling rivalry. The Lucky One is the timeless story of antagonism between two brothers: Gerald, who stands in the sun and Bob, who stands in Gerald’s shadow. When Bob finds himself in serious legal trouble, he turns to Gerald for rescue.

Milne passed away in 1956 at the age of 74, virtually all of his prodigious literary productivity was out-of-print-over two-dozen plays, plus numerous essay collections, ten novels, and several volumes of poetry-all forgotten. The only books that remained were four slim volumes of verses written for children between 1924 and 1928; four universally beloved books about a bear named Winnie-the-Pooh.

Not That Jewish
Monica Piper stars in 80 lightening minutes of storytelling in the autobiographical ride of a Jew-“ish” woman’s life.

Reminiscent of Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays with a peppering of Neil Simon’s Lost in Yonkers, Not That Jewish is storytelling at its best - a perfect blend of funny, moving, intimate and inspirational. In the blink of an eye, we travel with Piper from innocence to individuality, reliant to resilient, willingly sharing both humor and heart along the way! For more information visit http://notthatjew
