Best Newcomer Season
The finest up and coming comedy acts from Edinburgh and Melbourne wrapped up in Best Newcomer Season bow.
‘I’ve been dead for three days.’ A woman. A suicide. A choice. A lie. A truth. An ending. Of sorts.
Life, Alice thinks, isn’t worth living. So she kills herself. But she’s stuck. A fly on the wall. Forced to watch the aftermath of her suicide and its ripple effect on her family and friends, Alice quickly learns that death changes people. And discovers that death isn’t the change she hoped for.
Fresh from an award-winning, sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe 2017, Dust by Milly Thomas (Clique, BBC3; Clickbait and A First World Problem, Theatre503), directed by Sara Joyce, now transfers to London’s Soho Theatre.
Captioned performance: Thu 8 Mar
Please note: this performance has an age recommendation of 18+; it contains themes of a graphic nature and includes depictions of self harm and suicide. Please contact Box Office on 020 7478 0100 if you require further information.
‘Milly Thomas might just be the next Phoebe Waller-Bridge.’
‘Dust deserves a standing ovation.’
