Ways to be Happy

by David Lee White

Originally scheduled for production in the spring of 2020, Ways to be Happy has come to life as an audio play. This comedy about chasing our inalienable right covers 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? The recording can now be purchased for download below.
