THERE ARE THE BEST OF DAYS…
THERE ARE THE WORST OF DAYS…
AND THEN THERE ARE DAYS LIKE THESE…
Days Like These explores the varied ways we as humans express our emotions from one day to the next. Through a series of emotive snapshots the audience is invited to reflect on and revisit the best and worst days of your life. Drawing on ideas that our universal differences make us the same, a creative team of very different people bravely peel back their layers to share stories of joy, loss, frustration and change.
The show examines emotional thresholds and attempts to hold a mirror up for all, to ask yourself . . . what kind of day is today?
