Denver-based MW Productions brings Suicide(s) in Vegas to the Mile High City for one weekend only August 10-11 at Spark Theater.
Life's a bitch. What do you do when you want to end it all, but not alone? A random internet search connects Lydia, a charismatic self-help guru, to Jane, a lonely tollbooth collector. Their final destination: Vegas. But surviving (and dying) are tricky in this dark comedy by Evan Placey, winner of the Tarragon Theatre RBC National Playwriting Competition.
Suicide(s) in Vegas toured the Canadian Fringe Theatre circuit in 2011 to great acclaim. Featuring Denver's Next Improv Star finalist Margaret Whittum and Seoul 48Hour Film Fest Best Actor (2010) Jessica Coyle. See the play the Centaur Theatre of Montreal nominated BEST English Production (2011) for the Frankie Awards at the Montreal Fringe!
