Through image, action, sound, texture, story, gesture, games and Zoom trickery, the THST 355 collectively aims to explore: "Connection / Happiness / Hope / Light (in darkness) / Joy (from sadness) / Support (from isolation) / joy / light in dark spaces / connection despite being apart / An exploration of sorrow and loneliness juxtaposed with or even through experiences of joy / This play is about love. / It's about things that matter in the world. / Love for yourself and love for one another. / An exploration of how the meaning of love has changed and what we can do to get that back / Connection / Short stories of real people / Finding joy / Interactions / Empowerment / Love / Not just playing characters, but falling in love with characters/stories / Excitement / Energy / This is a play about joy in a world that does not tell us to be joyful. / It is about joy in all its subtleties and complexities. / What do we have to be joyful about? / Who gives or denies us the right to be joyful? / Where do we find joy, and how do we uphold it? / In what ways has our definition of joy changed? / ... a catalogue of joy if you will."
