Happy Days at War follows a couple who find love and joy amidst the political turmoil of Germany 1939. But assigned to work for the Führer, the husband must declare any affiliation with Jews or people with disabilities or impairments.
His wife is blind. Her impairment deems her subhuman under the Nazi regime.
Emotional torment takes over what was once a loving relationship as the husband's morals are questioned and he must choose his country or his wife.
Happy Days at War is an immersive theatre production presented by Believe Productions Australia and is coming to Melbourne after a sell-out season in Perth, 2016. The audience are seated on stage, in a kitchen, within metres of the action. This intimate theatrical style stimulates smell and touch in addition to the audio and visual elements of traditional theatre.
