Mr. Happiness is the curtain raiser for The Water Engine. This short play takes place in a 1930s radio station. A prim, sincere, advice-to-the-lovelorn personality answers – by some magical exposition of instant radio – the letters people have written him. In an unctuous, urbane voice, “Mr. Happiness” solves everyone’s problems in the style of a 1930s radio and newspaper Miss Lonelyhearts.

Published with The Water Engine.
