A poignant and tender-hearted play set in a pub kitchen.

When fifty-something Connie starts work in a pub kitchen one sweltering summer, she proves to be the catalyst for change in everyone's lives: Charley, the stubborn cook, is forced to reassess his past; while Richard, the stroppy bar manager, and his waitress girlfriend Caroline, come to realise that they may not be heading for the same future.

Simon Burt's play Got to be Happy was first staged at the Bush Theatre, London, in 2003.
