This Is How We Die

Store scene 17.03.2017 21:00

1 h. 10 min.

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

‘Blisteringly brilliant’ ★★★★ The Scotsman

★★★★★ Exeunt

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

A motor-mouthed collage of spoken word and storytelling with tales of paranoia, young love and ultra-violence. 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.

Christopher Brett Bailey is a writer, performer and experimental theatre maker. He is also a composer and performer of music. The multi-award winning show This Is How We Die is a torrent of language, a caustic firework of poetry, humour and storytelling set inside a sumptuous lighting design
