Following on from a run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year, it has been announced Dust will transfer to the Soho Theatre from the 20th February 2018.
Based on Thomas’ own experiences of depression as well as her desire to talk more about suicide and mental health, Dust is a comedic treatment of one woman’s depression, suicide and everything that happens afterwards.
A woman. A suicide. A choice. A fly on the wall. A funeral. A Bakewell tart. A life. A lie. A truth. An ending. Of sorts. Alice thinks that life isn’t worth living. So she kills herself. Sort of. She is 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 that death is not the change she hoped for.
Talking about the news, Milly Thomas said: “I’m beyond excited to bring Dust to a London audience. For the show to come to Soho Theatre after the support and nurturing they have given me from the very start of my career feels like a dream come true. So much of my very favourite work have grown from this venue and I’m hugely excited for this next chapter in Dust’s afterlife.”
Directed by Sara Joyce, Milly Thomas was awarded a Stage Edinburgh Award for her performance in Dust in Edinburgh 2017.
The show also features a set design by Anna Reid, sound design by Max Perryment, lighting by Jack Weir and is produced by Holly De Angelis.
Dust will play at the Soho Theatre from the 20th February until the 17th March 2018. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.sohotheatre.com/whats-on/dust/
