Death becomes her: A Brief List Of Everyone Who Died @finborough

For a natural process, death is not a topic that comes up naturally for people. We ask how people are doing but expect the response to be “I’m great”, not “I’m not dead yet”. And so for the main character in A Brief List of Everyone Who Died, Graciela has a death issue. Starting with when she was five and found out only after the matter that her parents had her beloved dog euthanised. So Graciela decides that nobody she loves will die from then on. And so this piece becomes a fruitless attempt at how she spends her life trying to avoid death while it is all around her. It’s currently having its world premiere  at the Finborough Theatre . As the play title suggests, it is a brief list of life moments where death and life intervene for the main character, from the passing of relatives, cancer, suicides, accidents and the loss of parents. Playwright Jacob Marx Rice plots the critical moments of the lives of these characters through their passing or the passing of those around them. Howeve

Scenes from Soho Sunday 12:02am - Just after midnight and the party gets in full swing.

New Year was a bit long for me as A and I got into Soho around 8pm. Four hours later I couldn't wait for 2006 to (finally) roll by.

After midnight as I started sobering up and the rest of the punters started going the opposite I noticed:
  • My friends slurring their speech
  • A rough looking Scotsman taking an American tourist down to the bathroom
  • By taking two steps back after some big scary person wishes you "happynewyeeaaaah" you avoid all physical contact with them
  • As my friends got their coats to leave, the same rough looking Scotsman walking up the stairs putting his clothes back on...
