Commissioned for New Diorama Theatre's  10th Anniversary Season. Touring from 2023.

Their choice? To die on stage - or off it. Hahaha.

It's the clown show about totalitarianism.

We are back in a critically-acclaimed, beautiful and bonkers world premiere, informed and inspired by conversations with international artists living under authoritarian regimes. 

Commissioned by New Diorama Theatre.

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
