The highly acclaimed Portuguese playwright blends classical philosophy and contemporary cynicism, placing importance on social and political analysis, and also experimenting with form. Saudade Theatre is committed to telling stories that affect social change. My Favorite Suicide inspires innovative dialogue by breaking the silence and taboo around this heart-wrenching subject while providing audiences with helpful suicide intervention and prevention resources. The company has partnered with the Pasadena Mental Health Advisory Committee to invite local nonprofit organizations to be present at each performance. Saudade Theatres production team includes Vanessa Varela (Producer), Filipe Valle Costa (Assistant Director), Garrett Crouch (Stage Manager, Lighting Design) and Drum & Lace (Original Music and Sound Design).
