R910 Discovery Miles 9 100 In stock

We Happy Few is the tale of a plucky bunch of moderately terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial in the city of Wellington Wells. In this alternative 1960s England, conformity is key. You’ll have to fight or blend in with the drug-addled inhabitants, most of whom don’t take kindly to people who won’t abide by their not-so-normal rules.

Discover the retrofuturistic city’s dark history as you play through the intertwined narratives of three quietly rebellious citizens of Wellington Wells, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, as they face their pasts, prepare for the future, and engage in activities that aren’t exactly status quo in the artificially enthused society.

Retrofuturistic 1960s England
Set in retrofuturistic 1960s England, you will find a city ravaged by war and rebuilt by delusionally happy people. Everything appears joyful in Wellington Wells, including its roads, its people, and its omnipresent television personality: Uncle Jack! But, it’s actually a world on the brink of collapse. Come unveil its dark history, and discover how and why its residents came to be so beguilingly happy.

Three Interwoven Narratives
Play as three flawed characters who explore their own connections to the events surrounding the rebuilding of Wellington Wells. They each have a unique storyline in which they interpret and react to the events around them in different ways. As you hide, conform, or fight back as each of them, you will encounter dark humour, a spot of hope, and even some redemption along the way.

A Dystopia of Your Very Own
In We Happy Few, no two playthroughs are alike. While the citizens of Wellington Wells will always want to ensure that you’ve taken your Joy, the procedurally generated world will ensure that your experience with We Happy Few is different and unique. Wellington Wells is never quite like you remember it.

We Happy Few follows a seven-woman amateur troupe as it travels the country's schools and village greens during the Second World War playing a repertoire of Shakespeare and other classics. Disasters happen, triumphs occur, but above all the show must go on...We Happy Few is frequently hilarious, often touching, but above all it has that 'lump-in-the-throat' quality, the laughter through tears that the British specialise in. Most notable recent example: Calendar Girls! Imogen Stubbs, herself an acclaimed Shakespearean actress, says of the woman who founded and led the company: 'Her chief weapons were a dogged determination, a courageous heart - and Shakespeare. Her passion, and the passion she instilled in those around her, had a tremendous effect on thousands of young people - Judi Dench included, to name but one.' We Happy Few is due to open in the West End in a production directed by Trevor Nunn, following a successful tryout in Malvern in November 2003. Casting and dates have yet to be decided.

In the tragicomic novel, We Happy Few, internationally recognized author Rolando Hinojosa takes us inside the politics of a tumultuous university campus set in a quiet university town on the Texas-Mexico border. The chaotic politics of faculty promotions and tenure, the zany protests of a student group representing the majority Mexican-American ethnic group on campus, and the complex work of a search committee to replace a high-level university administrator unfold at Belken State University in Klail City, Texas. From the offices of deans and professors to those of familiar power brokers such as banker Arnold "Noddy" Perkins and police chief Rafe Buenrostro, and even to the State House in Austin, Hinojosa sets up a beguiling game of life--and death. Racism and political machinations raise the stakes in the battle for the future of the university, the outcome of which will decide the fate of the faculty, staff, and especially the students, who place their hope for advancement in education. With We Happy Few, Hinojosa once again invites readers to observe the goings-on in his quixotic literary landscape, which the New York Times compared to Gabriel Garcia Marquez's Macondo and William Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha.
