Assisted Suicide: The Musical

With the Victorian Premier pushing for a parliamentary conscience vote on euthanasia this year, Assisted Suicide: The Musical is a must see at the Festival!

Following sell-out shows in the UK, disability rights campaigner and actor Liz Carr (Clarissa Mullery in the BBC’s Silent Witness) brings you her ‘TED talk with show tunes’ to explore this most topical of taboos.

Whilst opinion polls in the UK would have you believe that the majority think it’s a humane choice to legalise euthanasia or assisted suicide for terminally ill and disabled people, Liz and many others disagree—including the UK Parliament who in September 2015 voted overwhelmingly against an assisted suicide law.

Liz has debated this subject on television, been on a euthanasia road trip to all the countries where assisted suicide or euthanasia are legal and she has made this experience into a two-part BBC World Service radio documentary, ‘When Assisted Death is Legal’.

Confronting the lack of creative work exploring this most complex and controversial of subjects, she decided to combine her life as a performer with her life as a campaigner and her love of sequins and glitter. Assisted Suicide: The Musical was born.

She is joined by director Mark Whitelaw, composer Ian Hill and a talented cast to express this important but often unheard perspective.
