One of the funniest shows ever written, with belly laughs guaranteed. The Suicide: a comedy is a high-stakes, quick-paced farce about a man on the edge.

Simon is a man on the edge. With his life falling apart, he starts to contemplate his own end. What should be a simple tragedy, becomes a total farce as this quick-paced, high-stakes comedy is dragged kicking and screaming into 21st century Chester.
