When We Died
He’s dead, and it’s her job to prepare and present his body for his family’s final goodbye.
Writer and performer Alexandra Donnachie and Carbon Theatre are taking their bold and captivating one-woman production When We Died on tour to Lancaster.
Presenting an intimate tale of overcoming the past and fighting for control, this poignant production follows one woman as she is faced with the body of the man who raped her eleven months ago. She often imagines what each person’s life was like. But today she doesn’t have to imagine who he is.
This show addresses the prevailing issues of male violence against women in a fearless depiction of female strength and resilience - a striking journey of vulnerability and determination as one woman shares her story, on her terms, with the audience and the dead ready to listen.
