HOT: Happy Now National Theatre Southbank
I had bought tickets for this play ages ago, and couldn't remember anything about the plot or why I thought I might enjoy it. Well - the reason it's sold out is because it's a perfectly observed play about two couples and their gay friend who are mired in the drudgery of their suburban, kid-raising, home-renovations life/hell. Their petty arguments, over-reactions and barely-keeping-it-all-together perspectives were funny, relevant and just a little bit scary - this could be my life in ten years time.
