About Anatomy of A Suicide

“My mother always said to Live Big.

Live as much as I could.”

A startling theatrical triptych about three generations of mothers and daughters. For each woman, the chaos of what has come before brings with it a painful legacy. A powerful, unflinching look at a family afflicted with severe depression and mental illness.

“I have Stayed. I have Stayed - I have Stayed for as long as I possibly can.”

The director of the Old Fitz's acclaimed 2016 production of The Whale returns with this radically experimental new play from award-winning playwright and screenwriter, Alice Birch (Revolt. She said. Revolt again and Lady Macbeth).

“Birch has crafted a rich, haunting, technically dazzling script.” ★★★★★ - Time Out London

“Most productions require one viewing. Alice Birch’s spellbinding and serious new drama is worth three.” ★★★★★ - The Sunday Times

Winner of the 2018 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize
