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.

Thanks for such a great script on such a tough issue. It left a really big impact on everyone who saw it; and especially on those who brought it so convincingly to life.
Lots of positive comments on the "great writing" and the "amazing script"!
Thanks for writing it. I have never gotten as much out of my 15-17 year olds as I have from their work on and dedication to this story and its characters. They want to do it again, and again...
