Doing Well Together is a surreal, goofy little tragicomedy about feeling happy, being a good frined, and treating yourself well.

The story follows Dwave, a very worried doofus who is taking care of his dying best friend Renny. Dwave gets that Renny is dying, but wishes his buddy would try to be a little less pessimistic. After meeting Baper, a spit-shined model of positivity and selfless altruism, Dwave realizes that nothing in his world seems to be very good the way it is. Baper builds a very nice, huge church, Dwave trains for "The Best Smile Contest," and Renny looks for more days to keep wasting. No one is doing anything right, and everyone is trying their hardest.

This production contains strong language, violence, and the use of strobe lighting effects.
