THIS IS HOW WE DIE

THIS IS HOW WE DIE
6-10 August 2.30pm
Drill Hall Studio

Savage, surreal, hypnotic and apocalyptic, THIS IS HOW WE DIE blends spoken word, storytelling, caustic humour and gutter philosophy into a dizzying exorcism of a world that is convinced it is dying.

Filled with tales of paranoia and young love, ultra-violence and pitch-black humour – a spiralling odyssey of 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 and a blood-soaked love letter to the depraved, the depressed and the death-obsessed.

an absurd road movie of the soul cut with a razor wit and bubbling paranoia
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian ★★★★
