I hadn't read the book -- though I'm familiar with Coelho's work i.e. The Alchemist -- and I really loved the play. Very moving. Very sincere. I thought they did well with the tone, balancing between heavy and light. Left me with a very warm feeling. The actors played well off of each other, which is key in a play like this.
Quotes & Highlights
- <em>Veronika Decides to Die</em> was made into a <a target="_blank" href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1068678/">film</a> in 2009 starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.
In this life-affirming original stage production of Paulo Coelho’s stunning book, the concept of acceptable behavior is challenged and the notion of truth is re-imagined with intelligence, warmth,humor, and passion. After an attempted suicide leaves her health debilitated, Veronika finds herself living out her final days in a mental institution where the patients may be saner than the world outside. Her exploration of the true meaning of sanity and her fight for liberation reveal the power of love,redemption, self-acceptance and letting go.
