Casting will be announced shortly. Tickets are now on sale.

Right Before I Go. brings to life the last words of those lost to suicide, including the heartsick, bullied, veterans, mentally ill and the achingly lonely. This poignant, deeply moving, and surprisingly light play invokes a raw and authentic approach to storytelling in an effort to help broaden public perspective of suicide, eliminate the stigma associated with depression, and strengthen the relationship between survivors and those struggling every day.

Stage Scene LA called it “Powerful!” and “Deeply Moving!” while ShowMag.com exclaimed, “This piece needs to be heard.” On Monday, December 4, 2017 it made its East Coast premiere at New York City’s Town Hall, directed by Michael Wilson and featuring a cast of 23, including Oscar, Emmy and Tony Award-winners.
