The Conquest of Happiness

Prime Cut Productions Northern Ireland, East West Center Bosnia-Herzegovina and Mladinsko Theatre Slovenia present The Conquest of Happiness – a raw, visceral and powerful night of original, innovative theatre on an industrial scale. Directed by the internationally acclaimed Haris Pasovic.

For two nights only Ebrington Square will be transformed into the city’s largest stage to showcase this immersive, multi-sensory experience that will be unlike anything ever seen here before.

Inspired by the writing of world-renowned pacifist Bertrand Russell, The Conquest of Happiness will feature a dynamic combination of first hand accounts and dramatisation of some of the most horrific acts of war of the 20 capacity for endurance, love and generosity in even the most desperate circumstances.

Contains scenes some people may find upsetting and strong language and is recommended for 12 yrs +. Wet-weather ponchos will be provided. Please do not bring umbrellas.
