Hope has a Happy Meal
Years and years ago, Hope disappeared. Now, she's back. To find something she left behind.
But in the People's Republic of Koka Kola – a world of dwindling resources, corruption and corporate giants – what happens to Hope?
A surreal and frenetic quest through a hyper-capitalist country, Tom Fowler's play Hope has a Happy Meal premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in June 2023, directed by Lucy Morrison, in a co-production with SISTER.

'A surreal pleasure... Fowler's writing has an instantly appealing brightness and energy... a humorously lurid vision, with powerfully articulated emotions'Arts Desk
'A surreal, engrossing satire on a world where big brands own everything... Fowler's playfully dark humour hits the spot'Time Out

'Sparks with peppery wit, with an unapologetically sui generis sense of surreal black humour and plenty of humanity'Broadway World
