Am I Dead Yet? (Unlimited Theatre)

By | Published on Thursday 27 August 2015

Am I Dead Yet

We are all going to die. That we can be certain of. Chris Thorpe and Jon Spooner take a late night look at mortality and the process of dying in Unlimited Theatre’s new show ‘Am I Dead Yet?’, telling three stories over the course of the hour; of a suicide, of a little girl playing on the ice, and two men in the future waiting to die. A lesson in first aid is thrown in too, as the pair bring in the Front of House Manager from the Traverse Theatre for a quick lesson in CPR. The process of dying is an uncomfortable subject for an audience, but one that is handled very well here. Funny, heart-warming and a little bit silly.

Traverse Theatre, until 30 Aug.
