Death of England
"He wanted you to be a better man. He wanted to be a better man himself. He was lied to. Just like you are being lied to."
A family in mourning. A man in crisis
After the death of his dad, Michael is powerless and angry.
In a state of heartbreak, he confronts the difficult truths about his father's legacy and the country that shaped him. At the funeral, unannounced and unprepared, Michael decides it is time to speak.
Death of England is a powerful new monologue play by Roy Williams and Clint Dyer that explores family feelings and a country on the brink. This edition was published to coincide with the world premiere at the National Theatre, London, in 2020.
