So what exactly makes you joyful?

In a world where money can’t buy happiness but it can buy a house, Six Steps to Joy embraces the contradictions of modernity to remind you that life can be beautiful, people can be kind and joy may be lurking in unexpected places.

The show comes from the talented duo of Katharine Markwick, an award-winning writer-performer who was raised in Calderdale and BBC Speech Bubble, 2013 Funny Women Finalist Becky Brunning who met while training together at the London International School of Performing Arts.

The pair have trawled their experience and wrestled their wisdom into a six-step smorgasbord of sketches, stories, songs...and some science to create a show that is up-lifting, heart-warming, life-affirming ... and not too expensive!

Production company Hot Ice Theatre was established in 2011 and aims to make visually, physically and verbally inventive new work.

It won a Fringe Media Network Editor’s Choice Award for The Historians at EdFringe 2011 and the show went on to receive two GFTA awards in 2012 (development) and 2013 (Northern Tour).

Six Steps to Joy will be performed at the Actor’s Workshop Theatre, 7-9 St James St, Halifax. Tickets (£6), contact 01422 323688 or email for more information.
