The workers on Level 3 are racing against the clock to reach their quota of Smiley Faces, but are they really happy enough? A poignant, fast paced, comedy exploring our 21st century obsession with happiness and success. Can we learn to be happy?  And can our emotions be bought and sold? The ‘happiness industry’ would have us think so…

Expertly choreographed … laugh out loud comedy. This is thought-provoking stuff and anyone who has ever been asked to complete a happiness survey by their employer may be left feeling slightly queasy.’
