Nightwood Theatre presents the World Premiere

by Rose Cullis

Directed by Kelly Thornton

Cassie wants to be normal, Christian wants to be perfect and Margaret just wants to be happy. But what’s lurking beneath this family’s glossy veneer? The Happy Woman is a darkly comic exploration of what happens when bliss gets in the way of truth and threatens to destroy the very foundation we rely on.


”...a fascinating play of complex characters in prickly situations; some of which will make your neck hairs stand on end. Cullis is a strong writer with a vivid way of telling a compelling story.”
-Lynn Slotkin, The Slotkin Letter

“I look at her, and she’s so vulnerable andwide open, and I think how strange it is that the same thing that makes us beautiful is what makes us so easy to destroy.”
