I Want To Be Happy

No longer available

Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre


Binka is a guinea pig in a laboratory cage. Paul is the lab assistant who looks after her. Neither understand each other, yet everyday they share their hopes and fears. Binka wants to escape. Paul wants to get the love of his life back. Both just want to be happy again.

But how can you? When everything you’ve known is gone and you’re left with a broken heart, sometimes the greatest gift you can give the person you love, is to set them free.

Humour and pathos collide in this blackly funny odyssey from trailblazing theatre creators Nightsong (Mr Red Light, Te Pō, The Worm), starring theatre greats Jennifer Ludlam and Joel Tobeck.
