Synopsis:
It was workshopped at Syracuse University's New Works Program. This description is from the press release: "the MEANING OF LIFE. . . tells the story of a small group of twenty-somethings as they look for love in New York City. It is a humorous and touching exploration of what happens once academia vanishes and the real world appears. the play follows six friends in New York City as they journey from who they were to who they are-in the constant pursuit of who they are destined to be."
