The UI Department of Theatre is excited to launch our First Bite reading series of new plays written by our students. In this workshop reading of HAPPY MESS, new and old family secrets come out as the past and present collide in this dark comedy. In a constant barrage of self-doubt, change and circumstance each character is trying to discover themselves and live their truth. We lie and tell ourselves we’re happy. But when the truth’s revealed there’s a mess to clean up. And this family is one big Happy Mess.
All First Bite readings are FREE to attend. However, if you would like to make a tax-deductible gift to our department, we'd appreciate if you'd click on the following donation link: https://www.givecampus.com/campaigns/3269/donations/new?pdesignation=DepartmentofTheatreArts&_ga=2.166416382.1504020738.1600707453-80058674.1516209697
