Alum Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig’s new play, “The World of Extreme Happiness,” runs until October 26th at The Shed in London. The Shed is the National Theatre’s temporary venue, producing “original, ambitious and unexpected” theatre. Cowhig’s new play is the sixth production of The Shed’s first and only season.
In 2012, Chicago’s Goodman Theatre first produced “The World of Extreme Happiness.” The San Fransisco’s Playwrights Foundation further developed the work before making its way to London. Imaginative and wildly energetic, Cowhig’s new play journeys through the transformation in contemporary China. For more information about the production, including the reviews and its trailer, visit The Shed’s website and blog.

The 2014 volume includes over 60 works selected from thousands of nominations and hundreds of presses, a complete roster of today’s outstanding non-commercial publishers.
