This autumn, a theatre production created by two companies, one based in Northern Ireland and one based in Bosnia, co-produced a play called 'The Conquest of Happiness'. Marie-Louise Muir, herself a native of Derry-Londonderry travelled alongside the cast and crew as the hard-hitting anti-war piece debuted in her hometown then shifted to Mostar. Can a play provide any kind of hope or balm for the people of those cities, which have both experienced much trauma after conflict?
