Young Jean Lee’s Theater Company (New York)

We’re Gonna Die

UK Premiere

‘This sly, weird and thoroughly winning production... Its forthright acknowledgment that life can be a rough business is bracing, funny and, yes, consoling.’ New York Times

There’s one thing we all have in common, we’re going to die. We may be miserable, but we won’t be alone.

With wit, humour and live music from her band, Future Wife, award-winning playwright Young Jean Lee reflects on coming to terms with mortality, her experience of isolation and loneliness and the comfort she found in simple and unexpected things. It’s a wise and honest approach to issues that we often choose to ignore.

We’re Gonna Die has had audiences thinking, laughing and nodding in recognition in New York, Paris and Melbourne. You won’t find a smarter or more life-affirming way to contemplate the inevitable.
