The year is 1964 and Wallace Jones sits in a prison cell, practising his juggling for the death row talent show. He’s hoping to swing by on his way to the gallows. Suddenly his estranged wife Mary turns up. She has some news – she’s pregnant with his child.
While Wallace sits eating his final meal, the pair take a tense look back at their time together. As more unexpected revelations cause rifts in their relationship, the situation forces both to explore their conscience and, as they admit uncomfortable truths, the lines between right and wrong will become blurred beyond repair.
A piece of new writing from director Rowan Jacobs (who sold out shows at last year’s Fringe with Serotonin), Life in Death questions how much fate can be controlled – and asks how much control we really want.
