The Death & Life of All of Us

Camden People’s Theatre

Wed, Apr 10 2024 @ 9:00 pm


Following a sell-out premiere and an award-winning run at Edinburgh Fringe, migrant theatre maker Victor Esses brings his unique storytelling back to the London stage. At 19, Victor found his long-lost great-aunt Marcelle in Rome. She’d moved from Judaism to Christianity, Lebanon to Italy, changed her name and kept a life-long secret. Inspired by her strength and her rebellion, Victor started making a documentary about her life. 20 years later, this is his attempt at finishing it.

Mixing real life home videos, endearing storytelling and original live-music, The Death & Life of All of Us is a funny and poignant exploration of belonging, resilience and an unexpected connection to the past that refuses to let go. “Visually rich… a celebration of experimentation on and off stage” – The Scotsman. “There is a delightful softness to Esses, both in his performance style and writing… there is real tenderness here and emotional connection” – The Stage.
