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 trying to keep his client alive? Jonathan Berry directs this New York premiere 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 (111 West 46th Street, NYC, NY, 10036). Prior productions include the acclaimed world premieres of Stephen Karam's Speech & Debate (2007), Steven Levenson's The Language of Trees (2008), Adam Gwon's Ordinary Days (2009), Kim Rosenstock's Tigers Be Still (2010) and David West Read's The Dream of the Burning Boy (2011).

Roundabout is pleased to welcome back Gabriel Ebert following his performance in Brief Encounter last fall. Jake O'Connor returns to Roundabout Underground after The Dream of the Burning last Spring.

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. Robyn Goodman (Artistic Consultant to the Roundabout), who has significant artistic development experience, produces the initiative that continues to be a creative breeding ground for nurturing new talent.

The 62-seat Black Box Theatre, below the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, allows Roundabout to take artistic risks that are better suited for a more intimate space.

Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212)719-1300, online at www.roundaboutunderground.org or at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre box office (111 West 46 Street). The ticket price is $20.00 for all seats. All tickets for Suicide, Incorporated will be issued as General Admission passes for first-come, first-served seating on the show date.

Suicide, Incorporated will play Tuesday through Sunday evenings at 7:00PM with Saturday and Sunday matinees at 1:30PM.
