BY MILLY THOMAS

“I’ve been dead for three days.”

A woman. A suicide. A choice. A lie. A truth. An ending. Of sorts.

Life, Alice thinks, isn’t worth living. She kills herself. Now she’s stuck. A fly on the wall. Forced to watch the aftermath of her suicide and its ripple effect on her family and friends, Alice learns that death changes people. And she discovers that death isn’t the change she hoped for.

Following four award-winning, sell-out runs across the UK, London’s West End and New York, DUST by Milly Thomas, directed by Sara Joyce, now transfers to SHEDINBURGH. 

Content Warning: The show contains themes of a graphic nature and includes depictions of sex, self-harm and suicide.

Winner: The Stage Award Edinburgh 2017

Nominated: Best Off West End Production and Best New Play at the WhatsOnStage Awards 2019. 

Critics pick of the New York Times “That Ms. Thomas is still standing afterward is not the least of her achievements.”

“Brave, uncompromising… blisteringly honest” The Guardian

★★★★★ British Theatre Guide

★★★★ The Times

★★★★ “Haunting” Time Out

★★★★★ “A thrilling 80 minutes of pure theatre” Broadway World

★★★★★ “Insightful, emotionally-charged and not to be missed for all its life and energy. Milly Thomas’s performance is spectacularly beautiful, honest, gruesome and sad.” The Upcoming
