The Bright Blue Mailbox Suicide Note

The Bright Blue Mailbox Suicide Note

by Lindsay Price

Jake finds a suicide note in his mailbox. He doesn't know who it's from, or to whom it is addressed. His friends speculate, joke, and lose interest while Jake becomes obsessed. He goes on a crusade to find the author of the note. Instead, he stumbles upon a secret he never wanted to know.

This play explores how a group of teenagers publicly and privately deal with the issue of suicide. It is honest, straightforward, and also humorous. There is a great balance between ensemble, character, and monologue work.

This play has been wonderful for the kids and community, as we have had a rise in suicide attempts in our district this year.

This play brought out the talents and skills that I knew that my students had. With a simple set of just boxes, we brought home the North Dakota State Class B One Act Play Runner-Up.
