Happy Now?

By Lucinda Coxon

Paperback £8.99£7.19

EPUB £8.99£7.19

A painfully truthful, darkly comic take on contemporary life and how to survive it.

A chance encounter at a conference hotel plays upon Kitty's mind as she struggles to balance personal freedom with family life, fidelity and a testing job. Her husband seems more interested in misplaced apostrophes than his marriage, her parents are looking down the barrel of oblivion and, although she might toy with joining a gym, Kitty's running out of time for big changes.

Lucinda Coxon's play Happy Now? was first staged at the National Theatre, London, in 2008.

Press Quotes

'The best new play to have arrived on a British stage for at least a year... unsparing observation, baleful humour and underlying compassion... a richly rewarding gem of a play'

Telegraph

'Wonderfully funny and painfully accurate... hits nail after nail on the head'

Independent

'Everything about the play rings with a horrible truth, and the writing is consistently funny and flecked with pain'
