When video game designer Vi broke up with Becky, she used what she knew. She wrote herself a list. A list of the little things. The everyday things. The achievable things. She turned piecing herself back together into a game. Just for her.
When her rambunctious colleague Tyler begins to play along, however, he sees an opportunity. Not just to make money but perhaps to rid the world of clinical depression once and for all.
Happiness Ltd is the new play by acclaimed Plymouth playwright Tom Nicholas. It asks prescient questions about depression, ambition and how one measures the success, or otherwise, of a life.
