_Normal is relative
Kill Me Now is a black comedy about Jake who has sacrificed his career as a writer to care for his teenage son Joey. Both are keeping secrets - Jake about his love life and Joey about his plans for the future.
But when disaster strikes, they are forced to ask who’s really looking after who.
Bittersweet, fast-paced, ricocheting between the comedy and tragedy of disability, Kill Me Now is a funny and moving play about how we care for the people we love.
Greg Wise makes his return to the London stage after 17 years for the European première of this ground-breaking play. Award-winning playwright Brad Fraser and Founding Artistic Director of The Royal Exchange Braham Murray reunite for their sixth creative collaboration.
Gothic, offbeat, hilarious... he tells his fractured stories of fractured lives in a way that is compellingly theatrical.
