An Unlimited Theatre production
Death is no longer a moment. It is a process. A process that can be reversed.
Two friends, talking (and singing) about what happens when we die, how we think about dying, and most importantly, how some of us might be brought back. Performed by Jon Spooner and Chris Thorpe, Am I Dead Yet? is filled with stories and songs about death and dying and about how we don’t talk about it enough. It’s inspired by research into contemporary developments in resuscitation science and made in collaboration with Emergency Care doctors and professionals.
Am I Dead Yet? is the new show from Unlimited Theatre who were last at the Bush with MONEY the game show and who have developed an impressive reputation for creating new work that combines heart-warming and mind-bending storytelling with leading edge developments in science.
