New Play Addresses Themes of Suicide and Mourning

Psychology students take note!  The Ashland University Theatre Department will present a new play, Lindsay Joy's In the Event of My Death, at the end of October and beginning of November in Hugo Young Theatre.  According to the AU Arts Guide, the play "follows eight small town twenty-somethings who know each other from high school and share an impromptu time of mourning and celebration after the funeral of a mutual friend."  The play addresses themes of suicide, loss, and mourning. 

Ashland University is one of three colleges selected by the Farm Theatre in New York City to present this new play, and AU is the first of those colleges to stage a performance.  The playwright will be at AU for a talkback at the October 31st performance.  You can find more information on this show at
