Photo Flash: Dying for It Opens at the Almeida Theatre
Moira Buffini's new play Dying for It, freely adapted from Erdman's The Suicide, opened on March 15th after beginning previews at London's Almeida Theatre on March 8th. The show plays a limited engagement through April 28th.
"When his last hope for self-respect disappears, Semyon decides to take his own life. But word gets out and he finds himself inundated with sympathetic visitors - begging him to die on their behalf. Suddenly, he's an important man, and on the night of his proposed suicide, events spiral to a gloriously funny climax," state press materials on the play, which is directed by Anna Mackmin.
Dying for It stars Tom Brooke, Susan Brown, Dominic Charles-Rouse, Gil Cohen-Alloro, Charlie Condou, Michelle Dockery, Barnaby Kay, Paul Rider, Tony Rohr, Sophie Stanton, Ronan Vibert, and Liz White.
