Anatomy of A Suicide
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
