RIGHT BEFORE I GO. brings to life the last words of those lost to suicide, including the heartsick, bullied, veterans, mentally ill, and the achingly lonely. This poignant, deeply moving, and surprisingly light play invokes a raw and authentic approach to storytelling in an effort to help broaden the public perspective of suicide, eliminate the stigma associated with depression, and strengthen the relationship between survivors and those struggling every day.
Playwright Stan Zimmerman (“Golden Girls,” “Gilmore Girls,” “Roseanne”) wrote RIGHT BEFORE I GO. in response to a friend’s suicide. The play made its East Coast premiere at NYC’s Town Hall on Monday, December 4, 2017, directed by Michael Wilson (The Trip to Bountiful, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man) and starring a cast of Hollywood and Broadway stars.
RIGHT BEFORE I GO. continues to spread its message of awareness and prevention with performances across the country.
