Following sold out runs at Summerhall, Edinburgh Fringe and the VAULT Festival, new performance work YOU ARE GOING TO DIE comes to Southwark Playhouse Borough for a limited run. Performed entirely naked, YOU ARE GOING TO DIE is a nail-biting descent into existential anxiety as humanity stares down the proverbial toilet.

At once comic, bleak and beautiful, Scott-Rowley, the creator of the 2017 sixteen ★★★★★ awarded and internationally touring show THIS IS NOT CULTURALLY SIGNIFICANT evokes a world full of playful anarchic energy and mischievous bubbling humour, as his fantastical personas navigate the dark edges of existence and despair.

YOU ARE GOING TO DIE, a surreal meditation on annihilation, rests on the knife edge between physical theatre and performance art. It offers a shared purge and illuminates the darkest corners of the human psyche, revealing compassion and humour in the most unlikely of places.

★★★★ “Physically astonishing and vocally brilliant 60 minutes hovers between tragedy and farce, dread and hilarity” Lyn Gardner for The Stage

★★★★★ “Scott-Rowley’s incredible physical performance is utterly captivating, holding the audience with every pained gesture and moment of levity” British Theatre Guide

★★★★★ “The overall effect is both monstrous and magical” The Skinny

★★★★★ “a physical theatre masterpiece. It is entirely absorbing, entertaining, humorous but hitting really poignant spots in every audience member” Get the Chance Wales

★★★★★ “A crowd-pleasing, brilliantly vulgar spectacle… it serves as a jubilant, much-needed, collective catharsis” Fringe Biscuit
