The Happy Woman ()

Produced by

Nightwood Theatre

Playwright: Rose Cullis


The Berkeley Street Theatre – Marilyn and Charles Baillie Theatre


March 5th, 2012 – March 24th, 2012


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. (
