‘and every sun we’d walk towards would always be setting, in that beautiful place between the lightness and the dark.’
Two living, breathing people face each other in a theatre space. One is here to help. The other is here for redemption.
these words that’ll linger like ghosts till the day i drop down dead is a new experimental play from the multi-award-winning playwright Georgie Bailey, exploring the things we wish we’d said to those that have left, how effective art is as a coping therapy mechanism, how we manage grief and how ultimately, we can never change the past no matter how hard we try.
