We Are All Going to Die (Dead Person Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 8 August 2017

Death is inevitable when you’re stranded in an Arctic research base. Food is scarce – unless you’re on board with cannibalism – but even then there’s still no escaping the hypothermia that’s bound to kill you off. This is the dire predicament that eight people (and their one already dead friend) find themselves in here. Far from being a black comedy, Dead Person Productions have opted for the farcical approach, with a script stuffed full of jokes (of varying levels of hilarity and cleverness). Though the writing could use a little more refinement, this play makes no pretences: it is down-to-earth and lighthearted, making for an enjoyable fifty minutes of pure entertainment.

theSpace on North Bridge, until 19 Aug.
