Happy Hour

ensemble theatre · waffles & eggs + venice symphony orchestra · Ages 16+ · world premiere · United States of America

Happy hour is the best, except when it’s not. Rose isn’t ready to say goodbye, Kevin thinks he’s found “the one,” Cora can’t get a break and everyone else just wants to keep drinking. Multiple stories interweave as late-20-somethings struggle to be satisfied, find happiness and keep drinking…all in front of a live mini-orchestra.

A collaboration with The Venice Symphony Orchestra, Happy Hour is a 60 minute ensemble piece with a live music score. The happy hour at a local bar becomes a metaphor for that transitional time in life when you start to question everything and dreams feel more like delusions than destinies. A dramedy about the simple everyday struggle to stay hopeful.
