Nikolai Erdman’s satirical masterpiece The Suicide at the National Theatre.

A hilarious tale of misunderstandings, kebabs and immortality. From corrupt local politicians to social media-savvy kids, everyone wants a piece of Sam’s demise. Faced with the promise of immortality, what’s his life really worth?

Suhayla El-Bushra transports Nikolai Erdman’s satirical masterpiece The Suicide into a contemporary urban Britain. This provocative, fast-paced and very funny show stars Javone Prince (E4’s PhoneShop, BBC Two’s The Javone Prince Show, Statement of Regret at the NT) and is directed by Nadia Fall.

The Suicide runs from 6 April 2016 until 25 June 2016 at the National Theatre.

STORY

Things are getting tough for Sam. No job, benefits stopped and stuck in a tiny flat with his girlfriend Maya and her mum. The pressure is building. It feels like there might be only one way out.

But every ending is a beginning and there are plenty of people keen to capitalise on Sam’s momentous decision. From corrupt local politicians to social media-savvy kids, everyone wants a piece of Sam’s demise. It scarcely matters what Sam actually wants. Faced with the promise of immortality, what’s his life worth?
