The Jensen family is hoping to escape the mayhem and misery of everyday Texas life with a holiday vacation in the Colorado Mountains. Unfortunately, they have no such luck. A deluded mother, her three rowdy sons, her morose daughter, her daughter's "roommate" and her daughter-in-law, the aging Rodeo Queen, are stuck together for the hell-idays. Watch this odd bunch struggle to find the true meaning of Christmas and accept that family is family -- whether they like it or not. Learn More

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
- Veronika Decides to Die was made into a film 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.
