10 Ways to Die on Stage
Welcome to the world of Edward Rapley, a landscape replete with balloons and paddling pools, childhood memories and adult loss; a synthesis of stand-up, storytelling, dance, live art and clowning. 10 Ways to Die on Stage
brings one man's life, full of all his idiosyncrasies and frailties, into bewildering detail, switching from joyous abandonment to moments of tender beauty, as the audience are brought, for their own benefit, to witness an act of good-humoured self-dissection. Ed Rapley commands the stage and the space around him with such a delicate attention to detail that you cannot help but be drawn in to his world. He takes you gently by the hand and brings you to a place we all know but rarely speak about. He brings you there with an ache in the heart, a pain in the head and a little spark of hope.
