Are we looking for happiness in all the wrong places?

The Happiness Project

In The Happiness Project contemporary theatre asks some pretty important questions: what is happiness and where do we find it?

This is art with a heart, devised in response to reports that raised concerns over young people's wellbeing. Artists aged 12-19 put their heads together with six academics to create a unique intergenerational work exploring our understanding of happiness.

Journey with them to a place where scientific research and personal experience meet, where analytics meets autobiography.

The Happiness Project completely sold out at Edinburgh so book now to avoid disappointment.

Catch it at the Roundhouse in Camden 3-14 November, tickets £12.50+bkg. Watch the trailer here.

I looked for it on Blackpool beach with my Mum.
I looked for it in a raspberry ripple cheesecake.
I looked for it in detention. I looked for it online.
I looked for it in my gut.
I looked for it but it got complicated.
