No Longer Showing.
New York Times bestselling novelist Sheila Heti’s debut play, All Our Happy Days Are Stupid, was first commissioned in 2001 but, until last year, was never produced. The writing of it, and its long history outside the public eye, became the backdrop of Heti’s novel, How Should a Person Be?, which follows the personal and professional travails of a young woman named Sheila as she struggles to write a play. Written by Sheila Heti, directed by Jordan Tannahill with Erin Brubacher and music by Dan Bejar (New Pornographers, Destroyer).
The performance on February 20th will be followed by a talk back with Sheila Heti.
February 19–21, 25–28, 8pm. Matinee on February 28, 3pm
All Our Happy Days Are Stupid is produced by Suburban Beast in association with McSweeney’s, Warby Parker, and Harbourfront Centre. This presentation is made possible with support from The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation, Joseph and Joan Cullman Foundation for the Arts, The Cowles Charitable Trust, and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
