Ledge, Ledger and the Legend
Ledge, Ledger and the Legend
By Paul Elliott.

Cast: 3m. This show begins dramatically when Peter crawls out onto a ledge prepared to jump. There he meets J.M., a professional suicide counselor who will make sure that Peter goes out in style. J.M. guides Peter through all the problems of a successful suicide—how to obtain a crowd, how to hold the audience, how to build tension, how to obtain television coverage and, finally, when and how to jump. Then a rival suicide counselor appears. P.J. reveals that J.M. is a bust as a suicide counsel or he's fouled up every suicide attempt he's had. For example, there was the client who wanted to electrocute herself and J.M. managed to burn down her whole house—but the old lady came out without a scratch. At this point, Peter asserts himself and the play ends with a humorous reversal. Simple ext. set. Approximate Running Time: 30 minutes.
