Hotter Project to bring The Last Show Before We Die to London

Fresh from a hit run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Hotter Project will bring The Last Show Before We Die to London in the new year.

The genre-bending production from Ell Potter and Mary Higgins runs at The Yard Theatre from 8 – 20 January 2024.

A hyper-sensory mash-up of found audio and interviews, The Last Show Before We Die attempts to answer our existential questions – profound and profane – across generations.

A 93-year-old, former addict, midwife, climate activist and others share perspectives on endings inspired by zombies, heartbreak, and tenacious cockroaches.

Though known for hit shows tackling sex and shame, Ell and Mary’s signature candid style takes a dark turn here. This macabre cabaret promises an unforgettable reckoning with mortality, minus any happy endings

Written and performed by Ell Potter and Mary Higgins, the production is directed by Sammy J Glover with sound designer/musical director Tom Foskett-Barnes and lighting designer David Doyle.
