Here's Playbill.com's weekly "Last Chance" reminder to catch Broadway, Off-Broadway and world-premiere productions before they take a final bow.

Concluding Dec. 23

Maple and Vine (Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons / Mainstage Theater). In this New York premiere comedy by Jordan Harrison, a couple forsakes modern life and moves to a community of 1950s re-enactors, a compulsively authentic world where they're surprised by what their new neighbors—and they themselves—are willing to sacrifice for happiness. Visit TicketCentral.

Suicide, Incorporated (Off-Broadway at Roundabout's Black Box). Andrew Hinderaker's dark comedy takes us to an unorthodox writing service that specializes in crafting the perfect suicide note, where a subversive new employee (played by Gabriel Ebert) is suspected of the unthinkable. The play is "about the business of rewriting your ending." Visit RoundaboutUnderground.

Concluding Dec. 24

Richard II (Off-Broadway at Pearl Theatre Company @ New York City Center Stage II). In Richard II, Shakespeare chronicles the shattering fall of one king and the meteoric rise of another in a raw and powerful tale of a country—and a soul—in chaos. The first of eight historical plays dealing with the conflicts between the Royal British houses of York and Lancaster, Richard II tells the story of a childish monarch who is forced from the throne.
