Ways to be Happy

Originally scheduled for production in the spring of 2020, Ways to be Happy is coming to life as an audio play. This comedy about chasing our inalienable right will cover multiple locations using listeners’ imaginations and the lively sound design of Jeff Knapp. Darting from a convenience store to a cabin in the woods to a theme park, Maddie and the unusual people she meets are searching for happiness. Does it exist? Or is the world fundamentally rigged? Available in early October, the recording can be purchased for download on Dreamcatcher’s website.
