How To Suffer Better

About This Show

After catching her fiancé screwing her friend, Celeste reads under a Snapple bottle cap: “We can’t stop ourselves from suffering, but we can learn how to suffer better.” Mystified, she seeks out fellow sufferers to assist her in decoding the message. She finds a homeless man with a split personality, an octogenarian who invented a dating app, a maid longing for love, a clown enduring a bureaucratic nightmare, and an angry teen who threw a rock at Trump’s head. They all come together before an audience that will determine who is suffering the best. Presented as part of 59E59 Theaters’ East To Edinburgh Festival.
