The Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden

Always Love Lucy Theatre & King Lahiri Productions welcome you to their production of the Thornton Wilder one-act: The Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden, directed by Saima Huq. About the play: A middle-aged couple and two of their three surviving children drive through New Jersey, from Newark to Camden, to visit their eldest daughter, who has recently suffered a tragedy. The journey is full of arguments, laughter, and joy in simple things like billboards, hot dogs and sunsets. It’s a journey where nothing happens, and yet everything happens. The play was first produced on November 25, 1931, at the Yale University Theatre in New Haven, Connecticut, by the Yale Dramatic Association and the Vassar College Philalethis. Please turn off your cell phones and keep your masks on.
