Police and Crime Commissioner elections: Made In China
Jess is stuck. Her lifelong friend, Chris, can’t help. The others are out getting wasted. And the world is falling apart. Luckily Jess and Chris have a cooler full of beer, a goofy rapport, a series of dance moves – and a sincere desire to make you, the audience, happy.
Or so they claim.
They also claim that each other are liars. That they only met last year. And that they are eyewitnesses to the key world events of the last hundred years.
A flat-out, unhinged and very normal performance about trying to connect: to the person next to you and to the unknown victim of a televised tragedy.
We Hope That You’re Happy (Why Would We Lie?) is a hilarious and unsettling examination of what it means to be a tuned-in, delusional and unwitting consumer in a hyper-communicative world.
Made In China is the collaborative work of Tim Cowbury and Jessica Latowicki. They make visceral shows at the juncture of playwriting and live art, for audiences who are fans of neither and both.
Made In China are drawn to great stories but like to disrupt them with things like bad dancing, beer downing, interval training and downright lying. Each show makes its own rules. And each show aims to ask the audience difficult questions whilst giving them a really good time.
