Happiness Ltd

12th July 2017

When video game designer Vi broke up with Becky, she used what she knew. She wrote herself a list. A list of the little things. The everyday things. The achievable things. She turned piecing herself back together into a game. Just for her.

When her rambunctious colleague Tyler begins to play along, however, he sees an opportunity. Not just to make money but perhaps to rid the world of clinical depression once and for all.

Happiness Ltd is the new play by acclaimed Plymouth playwright Tom Nicholas and is directed by Jo Newman. It asks prescient questions about depression, ambition and how one measures the success, or otherwise, of a life.

Note: Happiness Ltd has just finished a hugely successful tour of the South West and London however we are currently looking at how we can extend the life of the show and share it with even more incredible audiences. If you are a programmer or producer who would be interested in bringing the show to your venue then please get in touch at info[at]newmodeltheatre[dot]com for a tour pack.
