AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Roland Makepeace knows what makes people happy. Why wouldn't he? He's an eminent professor of psychology who has devoted his life to scientifically investigating human well-being. But his theories are sorely tested when his wife meets an old suitor and his daughter threatens to go right off the rails. This sharply observed comedy suggests that theory can sometimes fall well short of reality and that finding happiness is easier said than done.' (Source: Ensemble Theatre website)
