Description

'At first you feel a winding pain... you get used to it, then you develop a liking to it...' The Happiness Project explores our need for non-sexual physical contact in our highly digital era. It features scenes of graphic reality TV binge-watching, Whitney Houston and spooning. We're not sure if any of it will make you happy, but it's worth a try. Performed by a diverse, inclusive cast and places queer, working-class and disabled peoples stories' centre stage.

All Edinburgh Theatre (5/5 stars) 60 days ago

The first thing that strikes about The Happiness Project is the colours. Shocking pink and neon yellow on a plain background and plastic-grass floor. Five actors are on stage, each willing to tell his, her, or their story. And the topic of queer identities couldn’t be explored in a more...
