A Shortcut to Happiness
Date: Thursday 12 July 2012 - Saturday 14 July 2012
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Clarence Street Theatre
Ned's life is just tickety-boo. Sure, he's adjusting to retirement and life on his own, but he's very comfortable with his lot, thank you very much. All that changes with his offer to sort out the financial woes of Natasha, an attractive Russian immigrant. A new world of possibilities opens up for Ned as he sees these strange creatures called Kiwis through foreign eyes.
Packed with Hall's trademarks of acute observation and bucket loads of humour, A SHORTCUT TO HAPPINESS is about discovering the ways of a new country, accepting differences, finding love and dancing your way to happiness.
There is a clash of cultures and prejudices as a group of laid-back North Shore retirees confront the strict discipline of a Russian folk dancing class. This is classic Hall - incisive, funny and full of compassion.
