MY FAVORITE SUICIDE

Saudade Theatre presents a co-production with Colectivo 84.  A World Premiere.

On the verge of apocalypse, in the middle of a mountainous forest, four friends grapple with the strangest of all human acts. What deaths do we give ourselves and what countless tales do we tell about them?
