Jump – one act drama about suicide

one act drama about suicide


A boy named Navii,  who doesn’t feel like a boy, draped in a pink dress on the verge of tears ascends a building and slowly steps towards the edge of it. However, he is interrupted from his “fate” by a man named London who has been living on the roof for years, contemplating every day whether to jump or not. London’s curiosity gets the better of him and Navii wants to find out more about this strange man living on top of the building. They slowly unravel the mystery of each other’s pasts, their minds and the true nature for their ascension all the while a quirky fellow with a box of popcorn watches them and a deadly supernatural presence is lurking all around.
