by Deborah Zoe Laufer

An Intriguing Comedy About Happiness

A pessimistic professor of nihilism develops a medical condition with a side effect that turns her into a happy, hopeful, believer in love. But what if curing her condition will return her to misery? This wise and quirky comedy asks – is happiness a choice or a pre-existing condition?

NEW THIS SEASON The Public Theatre will be offering a Video-On-Demand option of a performance recorded in front of a live audience for each play in the season that you can watch from home.
