Cheating Death at The Cockpit Theatre

Are you looking for a night out this month and not sure what to do? Well, I am happy to announce that Cheating Death will be opening on Thursday 21st February and running to Sunday 10th March at the Cockpit Theatre in Marylebone, London.

Bitter ex-girlfriends, online dating, and a very friendly cleaning lady, Cheating Death is a black comedy which will cheer you up during the winter gloom.

Waking up in a coffin is a dreaded nightmare for most. Waking up in a coffin at your own funeral to find your girlfriend and her new lover (who she cheated on you with) planning to move into the flat you shared (that, by the way, you own) is probably worse. But that’s exactly what happens to John Jones.

To say John is having a bad day is an understatement. Remembering only a car crash with a hazy sense of having been in hospital, coupled with some exceedingly strange dreams, Max Nowaz’s  ’Cheating Death’ is a play packed with dark humour and staged with wit and originality as it follows John’s attempts to crawl back to normality.

Cheating Death is the first staged play from novelist Max Nowaz, who has had notable success with children’s books, including Timbi’s Dream and for adults including The Arbitrator and Get Rich or Get Lucky. Now, he turns his trademark style of sharp wit, gallows humour and surrealism to the stage.

Cheating Death is directed by Poor School graduate, Sophie Wilson, with cast Alex Pitcher, Nicola Mae Begley, Lucy Beresford-Knox, Jake Botterell and Frankie Hyde-Peace also all graduates of The Poor School, Islington, London.
