New production The World of Extreme Happiness opens at the Shed on 25th September. The imaginative performance tells the story of young Sunny as she leaves her home in rural China for the promise of a job in a factory and a new life. However, as the reality of mopping factory floors dawns, the new future is proving to be hard and leaves Sunny striving for self-improvement.
