Edinburgh Fringe First Award - 2022

'Maybe gender is like life? And like time too? In that it doesn't actually exist, and yet our world revolves around the expectations we put on it'

Starting in the quaint days of dial-up and MSN, Happy Meal is a funny, moving and nostalgic story of transition, following two initial strangers on their journeys from teen to adult

From MySpace to TikTok

From cis to trans...

Tabby Lamb's joyful trans rom-com was directed by Jamie Fletcher and produced by Roots and Theatre Royal Plymouth, with ETT and Oxford Playhouse, on a UK tour in 2022, including a run at the Traverse Theatre during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it won a Fringe First Award


Endearing and playful... takes its place alongside iconic romcom classics at Edinburgh's Traverse, from David Greig's Midsummer to Liz Lochhead's Perfect Days... It makes your heart go hoppity-hop... a moreish and irresistible show that takes us to a very happy place indeed' ~ The Stage

'Generous and warm-hearted... a lovely, smart piece, written with great honesty and full of terrific dialogue... sharply funny, but also instinctively truthful' ~ WhatsOnStage

'Delightful... both a sweet comedy and an astute exploration of digital relationships and gender identity' ~ Guardian

'A simple one-hour tale of young love made complicated by society's attitudes to shifting gender... fine and touching' ~ Scotsman
