2016 Capital Fringe Preview #42: ‘One Mutual Happiness’ by David S. Kessler

What is One Mutual Happiness?

Take one totally unqualified wedding officiant, toss in an innovative composer, mix with four weddings and one prolonged illness. Add a generous scoop or two of laughs and a pinch of salty tears. Marinate, grill, and serve over a deep-fried hotdog, and you still won’t get One Mutual Happiness.


You’ll just have to come to the Mead Theatre Lab at Flashpoint this July during the 2016 Capital Fringe Festival when Uncle Funsy Productions presents One Mutual Happiness.

David S. Kessler (spoken word), who gave us Wombat Drool last year, and Rich O’Meara (music) bring you a true tale of love, community, celebration, and ritual.

Rich O’Meara is an amazing composer/performer who has composed a lush soundscape that is completely integrated into the script. Rich composes music as narrative while David’s prose incorporates musical structure.

Ukuleles, cellos, chimes, drums, vibes…and more.

It’s about journeys; it’s about The Simpsons and The Muppets; it’s about New Jersey and Peru and the Bahamas and Kentucky; it’s about marriage equality; it’s about morphine and marijuana; it’s about the Deepwater Diner.

It’s about you and me and us.

Join the Ceremony.

We’re all in this together.
