Brief Summary:
Philology professor – Scott Mirrormord – conducts a master-class in writing suicide notes for potential suicides. In this shorter version of the play the spectators find themselves at the first meeting, where the main goal is to discuss how the participants are planning to depart from this life and for whose sake they are committing the action.

Six anonymous participants – five men and a woman –join the master class. One of them completes his draft of the suicide note and commits the act of suicide, as soon as he leaves the room, where the master class is taking place.

How will the story develop and what awaits each of the remaining participants in the future, will they follow through with their decision to end their life?
