Christopher Brett Bailey

This Is How We Die

An absurd road movie of the soul cut with a razor wit and bubbling paranoia’ The Guardian ★★★★

A motor-mouthed collage of spoken word and storytelling. Tales of paranoia, young love and ultra-violence. From the desk of Christopher Brett Bailey comes a spiraling odyssey of pitch-black humour and nightmarish prose. 

With echoes of Lenny Bruce, William Burroughs, beat poetry and B-movies, This Is How We Die is a prime slice of surrealist trash, an Americana death trip and a dizzying exorcism for a world convinced it is dying...

‘a visceral, world-burning piece of theatre....a brutal, vital, incredible show’ Total Theatre
