  • Can a family heal after a public outburst? Book tickets to Death of England: Michael and experience a powerful exploration of loss and identity.

Death of England: Michael is a one-man play sparking conversations about race, class, and identity in Britain. Written by Roy Williams and Clint Dyer, the play originally premiered at the National Theatre in 2020. It garnered acclaim for its powerful monologue delivered by a grieving son, Michael (originally played by Rafe Spall), at his father's funeral. This production marks the first time the entire Death of England trilogy will be performed, making it a historic moment for British theatre.


Michael stands at his father's funeral, overwhelmed with grief and anger. He decides to deliver a eulogy unlike any other – a blistering indictment of his family's history and a scathing critique of the nation itself. As Michael confronts the ghosts of the past and the realities of the present, you'll be forced to confront your own beliefs about race, class, and what it truly means to be British. Will Michael find catharsis in his outburst, or will his words tear his family – and the audience – further apart? Book tickets for Death of England: Michael to find out!
