SUICIDE ROW

1 November, 2017 - 12 November, 2017

After finding themselves stuck on the way to the after life, four Australian men discover that their individual suicide attempts have miraculously failed. But if this isn’t the end then why are they stuck? The Gods never reply. And as time slows and as hindsight drags in an inescapable tide of regret, these men come to wonder if in order to escape this frustrating nothingness and return home, does life expect them to do something first. If so, what?

Suicide Row: Where the road back runs through each other.

Writer: Michael Griffith     

 

Comments from past production:

 

“You (Michael) write without fear and yet with a keen sense of both heart and responsibility. You have a good nose for story and a sharp sense of unrest and disquiet. There is enormous truth at the core of your work and you are relentless in your pursuit of it.”

                                                                Chris Mead MTC Programmer

“I have known of Michael’s work over a number of years, and consider that he has developed into an outstanding playwright. His recent plays have been extraordinary, in facing and dealing with thorny issues at the very heart of our society. His insights are uncompromising; matched only by his compassion.” 

                                                                Aarne  Neeme Director

“Griffith’s insightful script permits truly outstanding and convincing performances. He includes a poignant moment of comic relief to dissipate the volatile emotions filling the room”.

                                                               Lyn Zelen Theatre people

“Michael Griffith has written a play that will cast your morality adrift in an exercise of humanity. Combining moments of black humour and powerful emotion”

                                                                   Nigel Hawkins In Review

“Griffith crafts an ingenious script that shocks and confounds. We’re privy to family secrets; confessions and personal boundaries are crossed”

                                                                   Paul Russel Hope Australia
