About the show

After hit runs across the UK, Milly Thomas's solo play about a woman who is forced to watch the aftermath of her own suicide makes its stateside debut.

From the show:

‘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. So she kills herself. But 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 quickly learns that death changes people. And discovers that death isn’t the change she hoped for. 

Following three award-winning, sell-out runs across the UK and London’s West End, DUST by Milly Thomas, directed by Sara Joyce, transfers to Next Door at New York Theatre Workshop for a limited run until September 29th.

"This is a tricky high-wire act, and it is perhaps not surprising that Thomas repeatedly falls off. That she is a considerable talent is beyond doubt; that she is performing psychological surgery with blunt instruments is all too apparent."
