We are pleased to announce Suicide, Incorporated, a new Roundabout Underground production by Andrew Hinderaker and directed by Jason Moore.
Suicide, Incorporated will begin preview performances on Friday, October 14th, 2011, and will open officially on Sunday, November 6th, 2011. This is a limited engagement through Friday, December 23rd, 2011.
The right words can be hard to find, especially when they're your last. 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 helping his client find happiness? Suicide, Incorporated is about the business of rewriting your ending.
Suicide, Incorporated kicks off the fifth season of Roundabout Underground, an initiative launched in 2007 to introduce and cultivate artists in Roundabout’s 62-seat Black Box Theatre, at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. Prior productions include the acclaimed world premieres of Speech & Debate (2007), The Language of Trees (2008), Ordinary Days (2009), Tigers Be Still (2010) and The Dream of the Burning Boy (2011).
Jason Moore returns to Roundabout Theatre Company having directed Speech & Debate (2007), the inaugural production of Roundabout Underground.
Roundabout Underground is an initiative to showcase new plays that will either allow an experienced director to go back to his/her creative roots or give a debut production to an emerging writer or director.
