Autumn 24

A HAPPY-GO-WRONG LIFE EXPERIENCE becomes an award-winning theatre performance

Not all disabilities or chronic illnesses are visible but that doesn’t mean there are not huge personal challenges to overcome. That’s what powerhouse theatre performer, Andi Snelling, discovered after something as commonplace as a tickbite left her physically debilitated.

She turned it into a positive, literally turning herself upside down in the process. Andi performs her award-winning, solo theatre odyssey with an uncanny blend of roller skating clowning, storytelling, dance, and even a tiny bit of nudity!

‘Making Happy-Go-Wrong saved my life,’ says Andi. ‘I realised that sometimes being thrown upside down can put you back up the right way. As I continued to seek out the “happy” in all the wrong of my life, Happy-Go-Wrong became a lifeline that shines a light on the invisible battles that so many face on a daily basis. I am delighted to share this special show with Central Coast audiences, given my family connection to the area.’

Don’t just take our word for how special this performance is, here’s what the reviewers had to say:

★★★★★ ‘Phenomenal. One of the best physical theatre works I’ve seen,’ The Guardian.

★★★★★ ‘Exciting, joyous and life-affirming,’ The Barefoot Review.

★★★★★ ‘Incredible. A show that needs to be seen,’ MindShare.

★★★★★ ‘A necessary show,’ The Advertiser.

★★★★★ ‘Snelling pushes the boundaries and bravely bares her soul,’ InDaily.

★★★★★ ‘Captivating, provocative, heart-wrenching,’ Theatre People.

Laycock Street Community Theatre is proud to present this outstanding and unique, award-winning production as part of its DCR Studio Series.
