The Plaza Theatre addresses teen suicide with it’s upcoming production of Sleepwalk by the Emmy-winning playwright William Mastrosimone.   Creatively blending humor, pathos and imagination, the one-act play tells the story of Dillon, a young man flirting with suicide. Through the course of this fast-paced play, young Dillon will be confronted by characters representing the varying aspects of his dilemma, and the choices he must now make. The random collision of these forces in his head awakens Dillon’s joy of life, helping Dillon emerge from the nightmare.

“Teen suicide is a very serious problem in our country,” said Kenneth Kay, the Plaza Theatre’s new director of education and outreach. “Each year, hundreds of young people tragically take their own lives. Knowing how to recognize the warning signs, and a willingness to talk about them are important keys in preventing another tragedy from occurring.” Sleepwalk has a cast of nine actors, ages 15 – 25. In addition to the performance, the Plaza Theatre will have mental health professionals on hand to foster open dialogue about depression and suicide and remove the stigma associated with seeking professional help.

Sleepwalk will appear at The Plaza Theatre from May 23 – 26, 2013. Performances will be at 7:30PM on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday with a 2:00 PM matinee on Saturday and Sunday.  The Plaza Theatre is located at 262 S. Ocean Blvd in Manalapan, FL. The Plaza Theatre, a not-for-profit 250-seat theatre, is home to a variety of light-hearted shows, with an occasional gripping drama. For more information, please call 561-588-1820 or visit
