As the first production from Forward Roll Productions, I think it's worth documenting how it began.
So here's the story from the beautiful creator, Lulu McClatchy
" The Happiness, The Heartache was born out of a love of daytime soap operas pure and simple. I loved the over the top storylines and dramatic acting style. The fact that no story was too crazy and no costume gaudy enough.
The Happiness, The Heartache was first performed on stage in 1996 by my sister' s graduating class from The National Theatre Drama School, that original production included current cast members Michelle McClatchy and Lawrence Mooney.
See if you can spot them.
After the show people were asking what happened next and wanted to know how it ended. They
were hooked so I always knew I had to do something else with it.
Fast-forward to 2010, Arna came to me and suggested it was time. I agreed it had to be done, so I did a re-write and decided that it needed to be a TV series, the comedy comes through naturally because it’s set in the late 1980’s, it doesn’t need to be performed as a comedy for it to get laughs, the laughs are in the storylines and characterisations.
If you are a soap addict like me, you will probably recognise who I have modeled the characters on, if not you will definitely recognise the formula of the soap, explaining the storylines in one sentence of dialogue (just in case you missed an episode), the characters staring off into the distance or talking to themselves.
I can’t wait to share the finished product with everyone."
The Happiness, The Heartache is a joyful look back at the time when outrageous day time soap operas were king, it's a celebration - we hope you enjoy the party!
