'One of our most refreshingly provocative theatre companies’ Time Out

'Somewhere between Beckett and Monty Python' Sydney Morning Herald

'Oozes with the positivity of elderhood and good deaths' Melbourne Critique
 

Indie theatre legends Ridiculusmus are back with a funny and fragile study of ageing, death and the forgotten art of grieving.

Die! Die! Die! Old People Die! is a simple but paper-fine portrait of a timeless trio: a love triangle cursed to eternal life without eternal youth, in an age where death and the forgotten art of grieving have been medicalized out of existence. 

David Woods and Jon Haynes project into 120-year-old versions of themselves in a seriously funny show about hanging on, dying and mourning, played at 33rpm. 

Join this award-winning company as they try to reclaim humankind’s last taboo from its imminent eradication.

 

Want more Ridiculusmus? Come on 25 May and make a day of it.

Die! Die! Old People Die! is part of a Ridiculusmus triple bill which also include Give Me Your Love (25 May) and The Eradication of Schizophrenia in Western Lapland (25 May).

Supported by Wellcome and Arts Council England.

Running Time: 60 mins
Age Recommendation: 13+
