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. From ice-cream and Kung Fu movies, to Christopher Walken’s voice and laughing so hard you shoot milk through your nose.

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 seemingly 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
