Award-winning improvisers The Maydays present Happily Never After: a dark and twisted musical tale inspired by the warped imaginations of film director Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice) and The Brothers Grimm. The Maydays take you to mysterious worlds, meeting the grotesque and the innocent, and weave a fantastical tale that’s different every time. With black comedy, dynamic physicality, a bespoke cinematic soundtrack and skin-prickling songs, Happily Never After is a playful, creepy and delightfully dark experience.
