The Bright Blue Mailbox Suicide Note

Production Tips for
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.

Tips from past Producers

Keep it simple and focus all direction on character development, emotion, and interaction with other characters. This is a true ensemble piece and timing is crucial.
Make sure you have a good tech person for lighting. The play really needs those lighting moments to make it work. Attempting to do transitions between scenes on a fully lit stage would be very difficult.
