Abstract

The purpose of this article is to use the imaginative process of a theatrical script - also called ethnodrama - to explain how leisure is related to happiness within a framework of positive psychology. In particular, this ethnodrama presents an imaginative interdisciplinary scholarly conversation regarding how leisure is related to happiness among the following six thinkers: Jane Addams, Cindy Jackson, Mark Kingwell, Betsy Wearing, Martin Seligman, and Oksana Grybovych. This ethnodrama reflects what the authors believe could be a realistic conversation between six diverse people regarding how leisure is related to happiness through a positive psychology framework. © 2010 Canadian Association for Leisure Studies.
