Death. A bit grim, isn't it? Morbid, macabre and even unmentionable, but does it have to be that way? 

Drawn together by their shared fear of death, 'thanatophobes' Lucy Nicholls and Antonia Beck invite you to embark on a journey of discovery, contemplation and courage. Take time to celebrate your own mortality, laugh, cry, stick two fingers up at the grim reaper and discover why talking about death is ultimately life affirming.

Created in response to a provocative and unashamedly honest conversation about death, The Death Show looks to better understand our relationship with death and dying and why we struggle to accept our own mortality.

Written by Antonia Beck, Lucy Nicholls and Bernadette Russell. Performed by Antonia Beck and Lucy Nicholls. Directed by Bernadette Russell 

“The Death Show was a brave, tenacious, funny and deeply thought-provoking piece about a subject that ‘we’ find it so hard to talk about – how will we die and what will happen? Rather than take us down a morbid and depressing route The Death Show has the capacity to allow us to ask these questions and celebrate it.” Claire Birch, Producer, RSC 

Supported by the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, BrumYODO and Shoot Festival. With additional support from Midlands Arts Centre. Funded by Arts Council England and the Sir Barry Jackson Trust.

Winner of the Artist Development Prize - Shoot Festival, Coventry (2017)
