I think you have some really good points. Let me ask you some questions: 1. Aren't teens different than adults in how they face suicide? 2. Would a teen feel overwhelmed in a shorter period, about the same time or longer one than an adult? 3. How would the length of time required for despair to kick in (ie lead to suicide) be reflected in where and how the attempt was made?

I like your suggestion about setting the play outdoors and without adults. Unfortunately, requirements of where I am initially planning to submit the play have-- to a large degree-- dictated the settings and the characters that are involved. Do you think the play can be made to work in these settings and if so, how?
