ABOUT THE SHOW

Fame, wealth, and love have constantly eluded Joy ever since childhood. A down-on-her-luck, overweight, middle-aged housewife, she has resigned herself to a life of regret and unfulfilled potential. But when Niev Lapel comes to town — a spiritual healer made famous when she received supernatural powers from aliens in the woods — Joy is determined to take one final stab at getting what she deserves. Joined by a cast of awkward and interesting characters — her doting husband, a hellbent underachiever, a romantic blast from the past, and a bevy of lost spiritual disciples — Joy embarks on a journey to achieve enlightenment of the emotional, financial, and sexual kind. Like the lotus flower, she ultimately discovers that one can grow the most in even the lowest of places. Laden with expletives, adult situations, and catchy songs, Accidental Joy, is a visionary, third-eye opening spectacle that speaks to the central role we play in forging our own destinies. Breathe in the light. Breathe out the dark. Breathe in the love. Breathe out… you know what, just take a deep f*ckin’ breath because Joy is in everything!
