Doctor Ecstaticus and the quest for happiness
Burdened with loss, crippled by sadness, how do people find the strength to survive? When all hope and light is extinguished, a candle snuffed out by the unrelenting darkness, is there any glimmer of hope?
Cloaked in mystery, Dr. Ecstaticus and his travelling show journeys from town to town under the guise of a renowned alchemist. His true ambition, however, is an age-long search for the Well of Happiness - a whispered secret, a bedtime story shared between a child and their parents. Joining him is his young and faithful apprentice, and son, the energetic Pip. With a sharp-toothed smile and a gesture of his hand, Dr. Ecstaticus now offers you the chance to follow him on his quest through this darkly-twisted and fractured world. Does everlasting happiness truly exist? Can it be bottled and bargained for? Is it worth the price? More importantly, what price must the enigmatic doctor pay for such a treasured find?
