When the Light Leaves
The critically acclaimed production by Citizen Theatre
Dan’s dreaming of dead ducks and cartoon skeletons. He’s also dying.
Terminal brain cancer has forced Dan to decide how he wants the end of his life to look. Despite his supportive partner, well-intentioned sister and nurse who comforts by-the-book – no one can give him what he needs. It’s time Dan chooses how he goes.
With access to assisted dying now legal, everyone has an opinion about how you live and die. When The Light Leaves explores how people navigate the reality of death and reconcile their grief, leaving audiences to decide for themselves how they would want to go.
"..a moving and nuanced four-hander, featuring elegant design and emotionally charged performances"
"poignant and persuasive.....authentic and beautiful"
"There is a huge amount of talent present.....resulting in a moving exploration of what it means to allow people to live out the final moments of their lives with dignity, compassion and in control."
