Inspired by Intimate Death by Marie de Hennezel.
Can the dying teach us how to live? Inspired by the experiences of psychologist and palliative careworker Marie de Hennezel, we are asked to accompany people towards death. Characters explain to the audience the nature and progress of their disease and share final thoughts and deeds. A beautifully simple piece.
On Death is part of a groundbreaking series of 'theatre essays', which use drama as a way of exploring the fundamental preoccupations of modern life. Other works include On Love and On Ego.
