The Happy Garden of Life

By Anna Jastrzembski
Directed by Jenna Hoffmann

Set in a near-future utopia enforced by population control, The Happy Garden of Life follows the lives of various citizens caught up in a system of government-encouraged suicide. Through multiple storylines that converge in a hospital waiting room where a woman is about to give birth to triplets, The Happy Garden of Life considers how one person's worth can be qualified over another's — Would you like to live in such a world?

The Happy Garden of Life is a new play inspired by a short story by Kurt Vonnegut.
