There are only two roads to walk down. You can see the truth – and always be in pain. Or we can look away and be rich. And safe. And happy.
Imaginative and wildly energetic, The World of Extreme Happiness is a powerful new play at The Shed, journeying through the transformation of contemporary China.
Sunny leaves behind her family and her home in rural China for the promise of a job in a factory and a new life. Yet the bright neon lights of Shenzhen soon fade, and Sunny is left mopping factory floors. She wants more, much more.
Letting go of the past is never easy, and soon Sunny is forced to face the human cost of wealth, power, fame and honour.
The World of Extreme Happiness is at The Shed between 25 September – 26 October. Tickets cost £12/£20. Book online or call the box office on 020 7452 3000.
