Je Suis Dead is a show about inheritance, or everything we carry with us from our families and cultures. What stories are we living which are not our own? What happens when inherited lines meet?

Three strangers’ lives collide after a train accident. As daily life crumbles around them, strange ancestral figures start breaking through the cracks. Stories tangle into an increasingly confused knot, while three ordinary people desperately cling to what they believed was reality. Who, when, where? What the hell is going on and whose story is it anyway?

Conceived and directed by Fool’s Proof Theatre in collaboration with Gey Pin Ang (formerly of Grotowski Work Centre, Italy).

“Like a poem…Every movement, tone and syllable is packed with meaning.” The Baltimore Sun, USA.

“This is one to look out for, so search for them, wherever you can, and let there be no excuses for missing out if they’re in your area.” Theatre in Wales.
