The stage play ‘To Die Or Not To Die’, is a black comedy about death.

A middle-age man has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and was given less than a year to live.  He wants to die with dignity instead of being ravaged by cancer. His problem is that he is a devout Catholic and believes that committing suicide, or asking someone to kill him, are both mortal sins that would send him to Hell for eternity.

He hires a hit man to “just talk” with him.

Will he be able to get the hit man to kill him without asking outright thus committing a mortal sin?
Will he change his mind about dying?
How will he weather the BIG TWIST that happens right before intermission?

This play examines religious beliefs and death.
