ON THE OTHER HAND, WE'RE HAPPY by DAF JAMES

ON THE OTHER HAND, WE'RE HAPPY

 

A single dad meets his adopted daughter for the first time. Then he agrees to meet her birth-mother.

 

When their two worlds collide, will what they have in common outweigh their differences?

 

A one-off meeting. But three lives will be changed forever.

 

ON THE OTHER HAND, WE’RE HAPPY is a tender, funny, hopeful play about being a mum when your name is Dad.

 

Daf James is writing one of this year’s ROUNDABOUT rep plays in co-production with Theatr Clwyd, directed by Stef O’Driscoll. We are long time admirers of Daf’s sharp and potent writing and we’re excited to welcome him to PP with a brand new play for ROUNDABOUT audiences everywhere.

Daf is an award-winning writer, composer and performer working across theatre, radio television and film in English and Welsh. Having trained in the Lecoq pedagogy at the London International School of Performing Arts he went on to earn a doctorate in Theatre Studies from the University of Warwick.  His first full-length play LLWYTH[Tribe] was described in Contemporary Welsh Plays as ‘a water-shed play that changed the landscape of Welsh language theatre forever.’
