This Is How We Die

Tickets £15 (£12 concessions)

production information

A motor-mouthed collage of spoken word and storytelling. Tales of paranoia, young love and ultra-violence.  From the desk of Christopher Brett Bailey comes a spiralling 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...

"An absurd road movie of the soul cut with a razor wit and bubbling paranoia' ★★★★ The Guardian

"a visceral, world-burning piece of theatre... a brutal, vital, incredible show" Total Theatre

"Blisteringly brilliant"
★★★★ The Scotsman

★★★★★ Exeunt

★★★★ It's seldom that a moment of live performance on stage really shocks or transforms you. But it happens during this cartoon helter-skelter monologue
