It Is Easy To Be Dead

Trafalgar Studios 2

It Is Easy To Be Dead transfers from its critically acclaimed sell-out run at the Finborough Theatre.

It Is Easy To Be Dead transfers from its critically acclaimed sell-out run at the Finborough Theatre, where it was nominated for seven OffWestEnd Awards.

The show is based on the poetry, letters and brief life of Charles Hamilton Sorley, a young man killed in action during the First World War, leaving behind only his letters and poems.

When twenty year old Charles is killed in action during the First World War, his devastated parents are left with only his letters and poems to remember him by. 

Using his extraordinary writings, together with music and songs of the period, It Is Easy To Be Dead is a tender portrait of a brief life filled with promise, cut short by the futility of war.
