I’m Afraid of Amerikans

This new play with music, specially written for BA (Hons) Acting Musical Theatre 2018 students, is about life, death and memory.

Tina, a mum with a young family, dies. The play is made up of all the moments when people remember her after her death; her husband, her children, her friends, her work colleagues, ex-lovers, her tweeting contacts in Amerika. In scenes that are like tips of icebergs and like threads that intertwine and sometimes tangle, we learn about her life and the impact of her death on all of those who knew her. It’s a life after life, until finally no-one mentions her at all, and she dies for a second time.

Val Martin received a special award in this year’s Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting for his play This Is Not America.

Performed by BA (Hons) Acting Musical Theatre students, working alongside students from the BA (Hons) Theatre Practice.
