A motor-mouthed collage of spoken word and storytelling.
Presented by CHRISTOPHER BRETT BAILEY
From the desk of Christopher Brett Bailey comes a spiraling odyssey of pitch-black humour and nightmarish prose.
THIS IS HOW WE DIE is a prime slice of surrealist trash, an Americana death trip and a dizzying exorcism for a world convinced it is dying...

Absolutely fantastic performance by Christopher Brett Bailey!! The man was word perfect talking about the wildest of subjects in the weirdest of ways providing a different perspective on, sometimes controversial, topics in a way that made sense. This production was hilarious, weird, purposeful, original and it did not drag for one moment.
