Pi Theatre is excited to be presenting partners on Happiness TM by Ottawa's May Can Theatre at The Revolver Festival.
Happiness™is the self-help seminar for anyone who’s ever wanted it all (and is willing to pay for it!). Gather to experience the launch of The Infinity Line™ - HPL™’s answer to universal unhappiness - hosted by two of the company’s most revered spokesmen: James ‘when-life-gives-you-a’ Lemon and Peter ‘more-fun-than-monkeys-in-a’ Barrel. But before long, a glimpse backstage threatens to undermine their shiny exteriors: is this what being happy looks like? Or maybe it’s just about being the least sad person in the room…
Happiness™ looks at our relentless pursuit of just that, and our inability to admit the opposite; taking a beautiful and twisted premise to tear open the dark heart of brainwashing scam-schemes and corporate double speak.
May Can Theatre has established itself as an exciting and prolific source for independently produced and award winning new work in the Ottawa region. Led by CoArtistic Directors Tony Adams, Madeleine Boyes-Manseau and Cory Thibert, May Can creates theatrical productions and events that exist somewhere between performance, storytelling and improvisation. Outside of Ottawa, their work has traveled to Montreal, Winnipeg, Edmonton, St. John and Charlottetown.
