Content Warning: s**cide
Recommended for ages 18+ or, if younger, accompanied by a supportive adult.
When Stan Zimmerman’s friend died by suicide, he wanted to understand why. Unable to read his friend’s suicide note, he began to read suicide notes he found online. Notes from celebrities, veterans, members of the LGBTQ+ community – and people who survived their suicide attempt.
Zimmerman, primarily known for his writing on comedies Roseanne, Gilmore Girls, and The Golden Girls, brings these letters to life in Right Before I Go. First performed at the Hollywood Fringe Festival in 2015, Right Before I Go has now been performed across the country, offering hope and working to eliminate the stigma surrounding depression.
