Hampstead Theatre presents the UK premiere of Neil LaBute’s romantic comedy Reasons to be Happy, directed by Michael Attenborough.

Reasons to be Happy follows the lives and loves of four friends as they desperately search for that most elusive goal in life: happiness. The play is a companion piece to Reasons to be Pretty, which was also directed by Michael Attenborough in 2011 when he was Artistic Director of the Almeida.

Three years after a difficult breakup, Steph and Greg are wondering if they can start over again. The trouble is, she’s now married to someone else and he’s started a relationship with Carly – her best friend. Meanwhile, Carly’s ex-husband, Kent, wants her back, even more so when he hears about her new romance with Greg – his best friend.
