Happy Meal

A joyful queer rom-com for the MySpace generation.

''Gender is life tbh. It's like time too I guess. It kinda doesn't exist, but our world revolves around the expectations we put on it.''

Join us for an online show irl. Travel back to the quaint days of dial-up and MSN, where you’ll follow two strangers on their journeys to become who they always were.

A funny, moving, and nostalgic story of transition.

From teen to adult,
From MySpace to TikTok,
From cis to trans.

The world premiere of Tabby Lamb’s HAPPY MEAL is a joyful queer rom-com where Millennial meets Gen Z and change is all around. Exhilaratingly staged by Roots and Theatre Royal Plymouth and directed by Jamie Fletcher, fresh from her acclaimed production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch (★★★★★The Stage)
