Suicide, Incorporated gets Roundabout production
Andrew Hinderaker's Suicide, Incorporated will get a new production this fall at New York's Roundabout Theatre Company, that theater announced today. Suicide, which had its premiere last year at the Gift Theatre Company on Chicago's Northwest Side, will be produced under the Roundabout Underground shingle dedicated to emerging writers; Jason Moore (Avenue Q, Speech and Debate) will direct. Casting is yet to be announced; a recent reading in New York featured Josh Charles, T.R. Knight and Bobby Cannavale. Suicide, Incorporated will run October 14–December 23 at Roundabout; the play is also set for a Washington, D.C. bow next year.
The play, set at a suicide-note consulting firm, was a major hit at the Gift, where it starred Joshua Rollins and Michael Patrick Thornton and was directed by Jonathan Berry. TOC reviewer Caitlin Montanye Parrish called Suicide "Hinderaker, a resident playwright at Chicago Dramatists, is currently pursuing his M.F.A. at the University of Texas.."
