MY FAVORITE SUICIDE

2019
MICKAEL DE OLIVEIRA

A woman invites her three friends to a weekend retreat in the middle of a mountainous forest, where she decides to share her decision to put an end to her life and asks for their help in the process. 

 

After an unsuccessful rhetoric exercise between the woman and her friends, a Park Ranger knocks on their cabin door, only to announce a solar eruption that will very soon lead to the end of the world, and offer the group a way out. The woman, who preferred to give in to death at the beginning of the retreat, decides to be the first to leave the cabin, and blaze an unknown trail that we save the group.


My Favorite Suicide is the second collaboration between Colectivo84 and Luso-American company Saudade Theatre, after The Constitution, which premiered at Theatre Under St. Marks, in NYC (2017).
