This wonderful, interactive play charts the lengths we go to for those we love. With his mother in hospital, a young boy constructs a list of little things to help her find a way to be happy. In this raw, real and intimate piece of theatre, what begins as a naive way of dealing with tragedy becomes a life-long reminder that joy can be found in the seeming insignificant- that the unremarkable can, in fact, become something quite remarkable.
“Heart-wrenching, hilarious… possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop.” – The Guardian
