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 spiralling 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 American death trip and a dizzying exorcism for a world convinced it is dying…

Written and performed by Christopher Brett Bailey

Musicians: George Percy, Alicia Jane Turner, Christopher Brett Bailey, and Apollo

Produced by Beckie Darlington

Please note, this performance contains bad language. No latecomers will be admitted into this performance.

It’s seldom that a moment of live performance on stage really shocks or transforms you. But it happens during this cartoon helter-skelter monologue

If gonzo journalism ever needed a news anchor, this would be the guy
★★★★★ Exeunt

An absurd road movie of the soul cut with a razor wit and bubbling paranoia
