It Is Easy To Be Dead

It Is Easy To Be Dead

  • 9 November — 3 December 2016 *on now

*Please note this event takes place at Trafalgar Studio 2 and not at the Finborough Theatre*

Transferring from its critically acclaimed sell-out run at the Finborough Theatre, the world premiere production of It Is Easy To Be Dead by Neil McPherson opens at Studio 2, Trafalgar Studios, on Wednesday, 9 November 2016.

When twenty year old Charles Sorley is killed in action during the First World War, his devastated parents are left with only his letters and poems to remember him by. Using his extraordinary writings, together with music and songs of the period, It Is Easy To Be Dead is a tender portrait of a brief life filled with promise, cut short by the futility of war.

I Wish To Die Singing - Voices from the Armenian Genocide

http://oberonbooks.com/die-singing

“Who, after all, today remembers the annihilation of the Armenians?” – Adolf Hitler, 1939

I Wish To Die Singing – Voices From The Armenian Genocide is a controversial documentary drama uncovering the forgotten secrets and atrocities of a denied genocide. Following several characters through these traumatic events, the play includes eye-witness reportage, images, music, poetry from Armenia's greatest poets, and verbatim survivors testimonies from one of the greatest historical injustices of all time.

The Armenian Genocide of 1915-16 was perpetrated by the Ottoman Turkish Government against the Armenians, a Christian minority in a Muslim state. Up to one and a half million people died. To this day, the Turkish government refuses to admit that genocide ever took place.
