Assisted Suicide: The Musical is created by actor, comedian and disabled activist Liz Carr (best known for BBC's Silent Witness).
The show was performed at the Royal Festival Hall London as
part of Unlimited Festival, then toured the UK to the Unity Theatre Liverpool, Mercury Theatre Colchester and the Tramway in Glasgow. It returned to the Royal Festival Hall before touring to Australia in 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.”
