Suicide Punchline

Date: October 29, 2013
Time: 7:00 PM
Location: Atwood Memorial Center Theatre
Description: Entertainment. Suicide is only the beginning for survivors. Join solo performer Jen Tuder as she cross-examines her ghosts, knocks ‘em dead at cocktail parties, and enters dioramas of the afterlife. In Suicide Punchline surviving is the opposite of solving. Created by Jen Tuder in collaboration with Candace Stimpson. Directed by Candace Stimpson. Target audience: the living, the dead, and anyone who’s survived the suicide of a loved one. The author’s creative process: The writer created three distinct characters that represented different aspects of her survival experience. The Questioner personifies the unanswered questions that haunt suicide survivors. The Celebrant is the life of the party, who never lets the hard facts of survival bring her down. Finally, the Architect creates worlds where she can find her father and herself. Through this process, the writer realized that survival is an ongoing process, not a conflict that can be resolved. Her hope is that other suicide survivors can recognize something of themselves and their experiences in Suicide Punchline. She also hopes all kinds of survivors will find something in the show that helps them keep body and soul together.
