Suicide, Incorporated

Andrew Hinderaker's provocative and darkly funny new play takes us to an unorthodox writing service that specializes in crafting the perfect suicide note, where a subversive new employee is suspected of the unthinkable. Could he actually be trying to keep his client alive? Jonathan Berry directs this New York premiere about the business of rewriting your ending.

ABOUT ROUNDABOUT UNDERGROUND®

Roundabout Underground productions are produced in Roundabout's Black Box Theatre located within the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. It is an initiative designed to foster new works by emerging theatre artists. Roundabout Underground allows Roundabout to take artistic risks that are not viable on its larger stages, whether giving a debut production to an emerging writer or allowing an experienced director to go back to his or her creative roots. In addition to receiving an opportunity to debut their works as full-scale productions, up-and-coming playwrights receive the significant artistic and financial support of the country's largest not-for-profit theatre and a nurturing environment in which to debut their work.
