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.
