In the Event of My Death is about eight small-town twenty-somethings (who know each other from high school) who share an impromptu time of mourning and celebration after the suicide of a mutual friend. This play was originally developed through The Farm Theater's College Collaboration program, under the artistic direction of Padraic Lillis.
