Happy Meal

By Tabby Lamb
Imprint: Nick Hern Books
Paperback : 9781839041082, 80 pages, August 2022


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.


"Rapturous... wise, tender and joyous."

- Fest Mag

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

- Scotsman

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

- WhatsOnStage

"Captivating... the voice of a generation... leaves audiences with a Cheshire grin that doesn't leave their faces for hours after watching."

- Reviews Hub

"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

"Delightful... both a sweet comedy and an astute exploration of digital relationships and gender identity."

- Guardian
