Dave used to be a DJ, and not just any DJ, he spent his 20s filling fields and dropping beats for thousands of young revelers flocking to the 90s rave scene. All good things must come to an end so now, aged 45, he finds himself working in an advertising firm selling things he hates. However, old habits die hard and soon Dave is leading a group of young millennials, disenchanted with the lot of Generation Y, back into the fray. 'Captures the elation of the dance floor' **** (Scotsman), "Superb, witty and well-observed" **** (Stage).

 

HAPPY DAVE opened at The New Diorama in late July before heading to The Pleasance Courtyard for a month long run. While there it enjoyed great critical acclaim and sold out many shows before transferring back to the New Diorama for a run in September 2016.
