Escape From Happiness is Langley Players' FVZ Festival Entry.

This ain't your typical white picket fence type of family.
Meet the Quinns, a dysfunctional working class family from the wrong side of town. Headed by a mother who maintains only the most tenuous connection to reality, the family consists of three daughters who display a variety of neuroses and a chronically ill old man who may or may not be their father. Add to the mix a couple of criminals of dubious intelligence and two police officers who are not the darlings of the force's PR department and we have all the ingredients for a wonderful dark comedy by award winning Canadian playwright, George F. Walker. Some Coarse Language.

Shows start at 8:00pm Thursday through Saturday. Sunday matinees start at 2:00pm.
We suggest you arrive 1/2 hour before show time.
Admission is $15.00 – PAYMENT BY CASH OR CHEQUE ONLY
