IN THE EVENT OF MY DEATH|
Eight former high school friends, now in their mid-twenties, reunite for an impromptu night of mourning and celebration after the suicide of a mutual friend. Finding themselves divided by geography, sexual orientation, religious belief, and ultimately their own prejudices, it’s hard to remember what bonded them together in the first place. When shocking details surrounding their friend’s death bubble to the surface, they may never find their way back to each other without losing themselves in the process.
Stable Cable’s World Premiere of Lindsay Joy’s In the Event of My Death was developed through The Farm Theater’s College Collaboration program with Ashland University in Ohio, Centre College in Kentucky, and Clark University in Massachusetts.
