This is how we die

This is How we Die

Thu 16 Apr | 7.30pm | Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 16+

A motor-mouthed collage of spoken word and storytelling. Tales of paranoia, young love and ultraviolence. From the desk of Christopher Brett Bailey comes a spiraling odyssey of pitch-black humour and nightmarish prose.

With echoes of Lenny Bruce, William Burroughs, beat poetry and B-movies, THIS IS HOW WE DIE is a prime slice of surrealist trash, an Americana death trip and a dizzying exorcism for a world convinced it is dying.

Written and performed: Christopher Brett Bailey. Musicians: George Percy, Alicia Jane Turner, Christopher Brett Bailey, and Apollo. Dramaturg: Anne Rieger. Lighting Design: Sherry Coenen. Produced by Beckie Darlington.

An Ovalhouse commission, made with support from the Basement, Cambridge Junction and Norwich Arts Centre under East by South East. Supported by Arts Council England.

“An absurd road movie of the soul cut with a razor wit and bubbling paranoia”

★★★★ The Guardian.
