    Dead and Breathing

    European Premiere. Dead and Breathing is an unexpectedly funny tale of morality and mortality that pits the right to die against the right to live on your own terms.

    BSL Interpreted performance: Thursday 1 March. 


    ‘A timely and hilarious play about death and morality that will pull at your heart strings.’ ★★★★ Everything Theatre


    ‘This is a production that shines with black girl magic, female wit and wisdom… Dead and Breathing’s killer.’


    'Deadly noir-tinged humour.' The Stage


    Spiteful old Carolyn Whitlock wants to die already. She’s been sick with cancer for almost as long as she can remember and the pain has made her so mean that there’s no one left who loves her. She just wants to give up, but now she’s going to have to work harder than she ever has in her privileged life to convince her very Christian nurse to help her end it. But Veronika isn’t all she seems and before Carolyn can die in peace, they’ll both need to let go of everything they believe about what is right.



    The cast are Lizan Mitchell, multi-award winning stage and film actress whose credits include The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix); The Wire (HBO) and Electra (Broadway) and Kim Tatum (aka Mz Kimberley), American trans woman actress and model whose credits include Summer (TRSE) and EastEnders (BBC).
