Drama, Tragedy, Bedroom, Two Pages, Trigger - Suicide

This is a dark, intense story about an alcoholic man who has to face a visit to his doctor and shows how he deals with the outcome of the news he receives.

Set in just one room at the start and end of a single day, his path from functioning alcoholic to suicidal desperado is certainly one that any actor would love to get their teeth into.

It has been written for a male actor but could be easily adapted for a female.

You will need some minor props, great foley and clever use of lighting to really bring this to life.
