Presented in The Screening Room in The Old Vic Tunnels, Station Approach, London SE1
10 June - 9 July 2011

Theatre6 proudly present, in association with MokitaGrit Productions, a double bill of the award winning playwright David Mamet's thrilling period dramas, Mr. Happiness and The Water Engine. This double bill will take place at The Old Vic Tunnels underneath Waterloo Station.

Originally written as radio plays, both stem from a 1930's radio station where Mr. Happiness is the agony uncle of Old Time Radio. This 25 minute monologue takes the audience on an emotional journey as Mr Happiness helps solve problems from across the country; some tragic, some funny, but all of them compelling. The Water Engine is a radio thriller where young inventor Charles Lang creates a machine so brilliant that it will change the world forever; an engine that runs on water. Looking only to protect his invention and provide a better life for his sister Rita, Charles must triumph over the life-threatening Oberman and his conglomerate to give this marvel to the world, but at what price?
