Suicide2.png

Cryptic title? Let us help you out.

RD Casting's talented Sherwood Alexander is currently rehearsing for the London Premiere of Suicide where he will play the character of Light, the positive side of conscience. 

SherwoodAlexander.jpg

Fresh from an acclaimed run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Suicide has been reworked for its London premiere at The Other Palace.

John is a typical man, with a typical job, living his very typical life, but when things start to take a turn for the worse John isn't sure what to do. Can he continue with a life of deja vu and disappointment or is the only option to end it all once and for all?

Told through a contemporary score by Robert S J Lucas and with direction by Michael Davies, Suicide is a roller coaster of emotions guaranteed to make you think about the very real modern issue of male suicide.
