Jointly commissioning by Gloucestershire CCG and Gloucestershire County Council, ‘Risking Happiness’ was created by the Reckless Kettle Theatre Company and The Roses Theatre in 2015.

The characters and story of the play are fictitious, but the process of writing it drew from real people, situations and experiences.

The purpose of the play has been to stimulate conversations and promote healthy discussions about our attitude to risk in our daily lives – initially as professionals, but ultimately as individuals.

‘Risking Happiness’ has been used in workshops and staff training across a number of health, social care and voluntary organisations in Gloucestershire.
