Chicago scribe Andrew Hinderaker’s play, about a mischief-making employee at a company that helps clients pen the perfect suicide note, preemed at Chi’s Gift Theater last year. Moore (“Avenue Q,” “Tales of the City”) directed the initial offering of Roundabout Underground, the well-received “Speech and Debate.”
Underground, programmed with commercial producer Robyn Goodman (“Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo”), showcases work by up-and-coming writers and helmers in a 62-seat black box theater, with all tickets priced at $20. Last season the series offered two shows in a single season for the first time: “Tigers Be Still” and “The Dream of the Burning Boy.”
“Suicide, Incorporated” begins previews Oct. 14 ahead of a Nov. 6 opening. Cast and other creatives remain to be nailed down.
