Hope and Joy is a seriously funny play that explores love and loss in a changing environment, brought to An Lanntair by the multi-award winning, producing and touring theatre company Stellar Quines Theatre Company and exciting new theatre company Pearlfisher, formed by award winning directors Caitlin Skinner, Philip Howard and Mike Griffiths.
Hope’s labour is unusual and uneggspected. But nothing fazes Joy, the hospital cleaner who supports and befriends her.
When Joy is sacked for letting human-bird hybrids escape out the window, Joy moves in with Hope and her swan-boy son Magnus. Their lives collide in chaos, Hope is learning to love, Magnus is learning to fly, and Joy is in an unhelpful relationship with a goldfish.
Hope and Joy was written by Ellie Stewart and directed by Caitlin Skinner.
