ASSISTED SUICIDE: THE MUSICAL
by Liz Carr
Assisted Suicide: The Musical is created by actor, comedian and disabled activist Liz Carr (best know for Silent Witness on the BBC). The show has been performed at the Royal Festival Hall as part of Unlimited Festival, and has toured the UK to the Unity Theatre Liverpool, Mercury Theatre Colchester and the Tramway in Glasgow. It will be returning to the Royal Festival Hall in January before touring to Australia in spring 2017.
Assisted Suicide: The Musical is a theatrical extravaganza. The show provokes audiences by subverting notions on choice, dignity, compassion and quality of life through music, comedy, spectacle and shared humanity,
“This sensitive showstopper Assisted Suicide: The Musical didn’t disappoint. As Carr has explained in much of her activism, suicide isn’t funny, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take the rise out of society’s absurdly hypocritical attitudes towards the death that will not speak its name.” – Exeunt Magazine
