Reasons to be Happy at Hampstead Theatre.

Hampstead Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Neil LaBute’s new play Reasons to be Happy will receive its UK premiere at Hampstead Theatre.

‘I haven’t stopped thinking about you since you smashed my ice-cream sandwiches into the pavement’

Directed by Michael Attenborough, Reasons to be Happy follows the lives and loves of four friends as they desperately search for that most elusive goal in life: happiness.

Neil LaBute’s witty drama explores “unfinished business”: even though couples break up and friends drift apart, certain relationships never really cease. But does stepping backwards ever bring true happiness? Reasons To Be Happy is a companion piece to Reasons to be Pretty, which Attenborough directed in 2011 at the Almeida Theatre.

Reasons To Be Happy runs from 17 March 2016 until 24 April 2016 at Hampstead Theatre.

STORY

Three years after a difficult breakup, Steph and Greg are wondering if they can start over again. The trouble is, she’s now married to someone else and he’s started a relationship with Carly – her best friend. Meanwhile, Carly’s ex-husband, Kent, wants her back, even more so when he hears about her new romance with Greg – his best friend.

CAST

The cast includes Warren Brown, Lauren O’Neil, Robyn Addison and Tom Burke.

Reasons To Be Happy is directed by Michael Attenborough with design by Soutra Gilmour, lighting by Oliver Fenwick and sound by Fergus O’Hare.
