Because these days, everything's a joke. Isn't it?

The Suicide - 
A Comedy

by Nicolai Erdman

directed by Suzanne Agins

Given the current state of the coronavirus pandemic and calls for "social distancing," we don't feel like it would be socially or morally responsible to present The Suicide: A Comedy on March 21 in a traditional Upstarts format. As much as we'll miss seeing our Upstart Creatures community -- at a time like this more than ever -- your health and safety must come first.

The Upstart Creatures are lucky -- even if we have to reschedule this event, it won't affect the health of our organization. So many arts organizations are in much more difficult positions, and as lovers and patrons of the arts, if you can do without the reimbursement for a ticket purchased for another event that needs to be canceled or postponed, please consider it as a donation to that not-for-profit, many of which will spent months if not years recovering from this lost revenue.


And most of all, please take care of yourselves and your loved ones.
