Martin Crimp’s violent satire In The Republic Of Happiness offers a provocative account of contemporary obsessions.
A family Christmas is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of Uncle Bob. Who is he? Why has he come? Why does his wife stay out in the car? And what is the meaning of his long and outrageous message? All we can be sure of is that the world will never be the same again.
In The Republic Of Happiness is directed by the Royal Court’s Artistic Director Dominic Cooke whose credits at the venue include In Basildon, Chicken Soup With Barley and Clybourne Park for which he was nominated for an Olivier Award.
