Full casting and tour dates is announced for Dante or Die's electrifying and intimate story of love and redemption, Kiss Marry Kill.  Inspired by true events, this dramatic recreation from award-winning site-sensitive specialists reimagines the first same sex marriage that took place in a UK prison in 2015.

The production will tour to chapels around the UK, previewing in Kent before opening to press at Stone Nest London on Thursday 18th April.  It will then travel to Reading, Manchester, and Norwich.

Kiss Marry Kill zeroes in on the limits of our compassion, challenging our assumptions and preconceptions around sexuality, and the criminal justice system.
