Andi Snelling’s life has taken a spectacular wrong turn, leaving her fighting for survival. Little does she know, she is about to be rescued in the most profound way.
Happy-Go-Wrong offers an intimate peek behind the curtain of those who face their mortality on a daily basis with unflinching honesty and life-saving comedy. And roller skates.
Blending clowning, storytelling and physical theatre with a twist, Happy-Go-Wrong is a visceral solo odyssey through the darkest depths of human struggle, lit by the power of resilience.
Following her sold-out hits #DearDiary and Déjà Vu (And Other Forms of Knowing), this is Snelling's third collaboration with director Danielle Cresp and marks a triumphant comeback after three epic years away from the stage.
