Victoria Firth – How to be Amazingly Happy 
How to be amazingly happy! 
How do you find a new ‘once upon a time’ after the ‘happy ever after’ never
turned up? 
Victoria is on a quest to discover how you make a new life when you can’t have
the one you imagined. In this big hearted, big thinking show of storytelling and
physical comedy our heroine’s mid-life search for joy, identity and belonging
features public displays of playfulness, private truths and sheer bloody
mindedness. Join Victoria as she asks – is it possible to be happy without kids? 
Aliki Chapple – 666 Comments! 
One internet comment thread. Two performers. 666 comments. 
In October 2010 cartoonist Gabby Shultz posted a comic strip on his website. It
was about online sexism. What could possibly go wrong? Over the next three
days it went viral and the comments went bananas. Some of them were witty,
some of them were outrageous, some of them were just plain bizarre. 666
Comments is an attempt to stage that comment thread.
