Theatre / Hamburg & Malmö
„HAP“ - I just want to be miserable like everyone else  - by John Foster


The world premiere of a sparkling new comedy by BAFTA award-winning, OFFIE-nominated British playwright and screenwriter John Foster. Presented in collaboration by The English Theatre of Hamburg (Germany), HIT’International (Denmark) and Teaterhuset Bastionen (Sweden/Malmö).


Meet Hap. Despite all attempts to be a miserablist she can’t ever be unhappy. Unhappy at being happy, she visits Doctor Marples seeking a cure. Doctor Marples, herself desperate for joy doesn’t know how to be happy. This hilarious and quirky comedy about our modern obsession with the pursuit of happiness, shows 2 very different, city-slicker women on either end of a slippery therapist’s couch. Despite the ongoing monotony of Brexit, Corona and takeaways-for-one, Hap and her doctor find, to their surprise, giggles and romance in the most unlikely of places - the therapist’s couch.
