This Is Living

Written by Liam Borrett
Directed by Anna Clart
Performed in The Linbury Studio

You weren’t moving. Your hair was soaked. We saw you.

Alice and Michael love each other, but Alice is dead. As Michael struggles to cope with planning the funeral and taking care of their 3-year-old daughter, Alice is left stranded in a no-man’s land with no heartbeat and no life – except for Michael’s visits when he falls asleep. Michael believes that he can’t face his life without Alice, and Alice has to come to terms with the end of hers.

A punchy, poetic look at a relationship from beginning to premature end.

By arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
