A motor-mouthed collage of spoken word and storytelling. Tales of paranoia, young love and ultra-violence, a spiraling odyssey of pitch-black humour and nightmarish prose.

With echoes of Lenny Bruce, William Burroughs, beat poetry and B-movies This Is How We Die is a prime slice of surrealist trash, an Americana death trip and a dizzying exorcism for a world convinced it is dying...

Following two sell-out runs at BAC from Autumn 2014, Christopher Brett Bailey's award-winning This Is How We Die is at the Almeida for four performances only

Shows: Sunday 10 & Sunday 24 September, 6pm & 8pm

“Transfixing: a fast stream of irony, barbed words and fucked-up narratives... Intensely visual, often smilingly brutal. ”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)

“Christopher Brett Bailey takes a scythe to language in his hypnotic, poetic solo show. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“As the final sounds of Christopher Brett Bailey’s first solo show died away, a happy air of “what the hell was that?” descended.”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)
