Sofia was recently hired as an empathy coach at a debt collection agency-and clearly, she has her work cut out for her. These employees can barely identify what an emotion is, much less practice deep, radical compassion for others. And while they painstakingly stumble towards enlightenment, someone keeps mugging Eva in the kitchen. An outrageous comedy about the absurdity-and the danger-of complicity in a world where some people's feelings matter more than others'.

The cast of Do You Feel Anger? Includes Ensemble Members Lawrence Grimm and Levi Holloway, with Paul Dillon, Emjoy Gavino, Bernard Gilbert, Jennifer Jelsema and Sadieh Rifai.

The creative team includes Jeff Kmiec (scenic design), Stephanie Cluggish (costume design) and Mike Durst (lighting design). Additional creative team members will be announced at a later date.
