Now you can question the life I live and the choices I've made, but when I step onto that dancefloor I know, without a doubt, that is exactly where I'm supposed to be. The world and his wife don't mean a thing, all that matters is where I am and the people I'm with.

Dave used to be a DJ. And not just any DJ; he spent his 20s filling fields and dropping beats for thousands of young revelers flocking to the 90s rave scene.

All good things must come to an end so now, in his 40s, he finds himself working in an advertising firm selling things he hates.

But old habits die hard and soon Dave is leading a group of young millennials, disenchanted with the lot of Generation Y, back into the fray.

Happy Dave was first performed in preview at the New Diorama, London, ahead of its month-long stint at the Pleasance, Edinburgh, for the 2016 Festival Fringe.
