About Hope and Joy

By Ellie Stewart

Hope’s labour is unusual and uneggspected.

Happily, nothing fazes Joy, the hospital cleaner, who helps Hope escape. When Joy is sacked from her job, she moves in with Hope and her swan-boy son, Magnus. Their lives collide in chaos - can they survive this shifting world?

A deeply original play that explores love and loss in a changing environment, using bold visuals and strong physical elements to imagine a Scotland in a time much like ours, but not quite.

Age Guide: 12+
