Book, music & lyrics by Nick Choo
Six people’s lives are turned upside-down when someone near and dear to them decides to take the plunge – off the ledge of a building. Suddenly his mother, older brother, girlfriend and three friends are forced to re-examine their individual histories with the boy, in the process learning things both startling and redeeming about themselves and one another – about family and friends, love and betrayal – in this harrowing musical that explores the complex relationships between these six persons and a young man moved to the point of despair.
