Jess is stuck. Her lifelong friend, Chris, can’t help. The others are out getting wasted. And the world is falling apart. Luckily Jess and Chris have a cooler full of beer, a goofy rapport, a series of dance moves – and a sincere desire to make you, the audience, happy. Or so they claim.
They also claim that each other are liars. That they only met last year. And that they are eyewitnesses to the key world events of the last hundred years.
A flat-out, unhinged and very normal performance about trying to connect: to the person next to you and to the unknown victim of a televised tragedy.
We Hope That You’re Happy (Why Would We Lie?) is a hilarious and unsettling examination of what it means to be a tuned-in, delusional and unwitting consumer in a hyper-communicative world.
“A very carefully written and effectively realised piece of theatre, words, physical actions and visual images all balanced beautifully”
