Part of Unity’s Open Call and Supported by Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse

Up Next is a new event series showcasing exciting new work from Merseyside performers. In one evening, you can experience a double bill of sharing’s across both our spaces, premiering new writing from across the city

Violet feels anxious when she’s around Glen. So what? People feel nervous around their romantic partners – it’s called butterflies. But Violet feels nervous around Glen all the time. She has intrusive and obsessive thoughts that she will hurt Glen while she sleeps.

A Heavenly Way to Die is a love story about being in a relationship while suffering from Harm OCD. This rehearsed reading is supported by the Unity and the Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse.
