Breathing Corpses

Written by Laura Wade

Directed by Robert Laycock

I hope you have a nice time. I don’t believe in God, really, which is a shame in this type of situation, but –

As Amy, a chambermaid who has the luck of regularly finding the recently deceased, wonders about the life of a dead occupant of the hotel room she was about to clean, we are invited to discover the circumstances that led up to the event in this cleverly constructed drama. Earning Laura Wade the Most Promising Playwright award from the Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards, Breathing Corpses is a gift for both the actors performing it and the audience watching it. This production will be the first professional London revival since its premiere at the Royal Court Theatre in 2005.


Alice Bailey Johnson, David Burt, Emma Byrne, Dave Fishley, Imogen Smith and Christopher Williams


Production Manager is Matt Tarbuck, Designer is Amy Watts, Lighting Designer is Ben Jacobs, Stage Manager is Gareth McLeod and the Producer is Daniel Souter.
