The staff of New Life Capital are experts in estate planning, bankruptcy, office romances, and regret. Suffering, Inc. shows us a week in the life of a typical American office where the employees problems are familiar, humorous, and horrifying. This original and modern story uses only lines of dialogue from the plays of the Russian master Anton Chekhov (1860 - 1904). Pony World Theatre combines their whimsical style with Chekhovs dark humor and heartache in this updated version of their 2011 hit. Suffering, Inc. examines our hopes and disappointments through awkward birthday parties, sales calls, broken printers, puppets, and poetry.
