We're Gonna Die


Mortality may be the thing that binds us together, but why be morbid when we can have a party instead? Join Flying V as we bring celebrated playwright Young Jean Lee's look at living life with death on the horizon to the stage! Company Member Farrell Parker fronts a live band in this mash-up performance that mixes elements of storytelling session, stand up set, and rock concert to explore real-life experiences of facing down our inevitable demise. Featuring a different Opening Act each week - from musicians to magicians, stand up comics to storytellers. The result is a life-affirming show that explores the ways we're in this together even in our most isolating moments, and the one thing we all have in common: We're Gonna Die.
