The Pursuit of Happiness

Workshop Production

Directed by Cynthia Ettinger

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

- Thomas Jefferson
From the Declaration of Independence to Instagram, The Pursuit of Happiness Workshop Production calls attention to the modern day cultural obsession with making happiness the ultimate goal. Are we happy? This experiential workshop production directed by our co-artistic director, Cynthia Ettinger, explores the multi-layered definition of happiness and its authenticity through the avenues in which we choose to pursue it. Our workshop productions are a unique opportunity for the curious soul to witness our creative process and all of its moments of magic and discovery which are usually only for the eyes of the cast. Come join us in asking questions and be our eyes and hearts as we explore a new Actors’ Gang original production.

“Our declaration of independence calls for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In this workshop, we are focusing on understanding the science of happiness and sharing authentic happiness. It’s an invitation to exploring of our vibrancy and a deeper understanding of our own happiness. Laughter is a common language and I’m hoping this is what this workshop production will enable in each and every member of the audience”Cynthia Ettinger
