A funny and fragile study of ageing, death and the forgotten art of grieving. 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 madicalized out of existence.
Indie theatre legends, David Woods and Jon Haynes project into 120-year-old versions of themselves in a seriously funny work about hanging on, dying and mourning, played at 33rpm. A visceral experience more than a show, Die! Die! Die! Old People Die! oozes with the positivity of elderhood and good deaths.
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).
