Why Watch Death of England: Michael

Brace yourself for an unflinching look at modern Britain in Death of England: Michael, the first chapter of a trilogy by renowned playwrights Clint Dyer and Roy Williams.

The story

Following his father's death, Michael finds himself lost in a whirlwind of emotions. At the funeral, the anger boils over. Instead of a traditional eulogy, Michael delivers a raw and unfiltered speech that exposes buried family tensions and forces everyone to confront uncomfortable truths about race, class, and their place in modern Britain. Will Michael's outburst tear the family apart? Book tickets for Death of England: Michael and experience a powerful exploration of loss, identity, and a nation on the brink.
