reasons to be happy

2 Male, 2 Female

Neil LaBute Price: $9.99

reasons to be happy is the the sequel to reasons to be pretty

Three years have now passed after the contentious break-up of Steph and Greg

And they're now wondering if they can make a fresh go of it

Trouble is, she's married to someone else

And he's just embarked on a relationship with Steph's best friend, Carly

A single mom whose jealous ex-husband, Kent, has trouble articulating his feelings

Navigating the rocky landscape of conflicting agendas and exploding emotions isn't going to be easy for any of them

But this is a funny, surprising, and poignant play about the choices and sacrifices we are willing to make in the pursuit of that often elusive ideal - happiness
