The Maydays present Happily Never After – Award-winning improvisers The Maydays present this skin-prickling tale full of black comedy and haunting music, inspired by the warped imaginations of Tim Burton, Lemony Snicket and the Brothers Grimm. Starting with your suggestion, The Maydays take you on a bone-chilling journey, meeting the grotesque and the innocent, weaving a fantastical story that’s different every time. Happily Never After is a favourite on the Edinburgh Fringe and has played to sell-out audiences across Europe.
‘Happily Never After is hilarious’ (Colin Mochrie, Whose Line is it Anyway?).
