Written by Cecilia Copeland (From the Minor Variations Playwrighting Lab)
Synopsis: In a future where a terrible tragedy has robbed the confidence and hope from America, the country strives to regain itself as told through the story of one man. Ignacio is the best donor to the program of Biolife, a newly government sponsored program which promotes a happy life through the use of artificial emotions. Prom Queens and Prisoners donate their happiness which gets watered down and sold to the public at large. Ignacio must decide if living in the real world is better than a false one, and whether he can find a way to be a man with or without his father’s approval.
Reading Under the Influence

Don’t judge a book club by its cover… you never know how the pages will turn!
