Milly Thomas' Dust transfers to Trafalgar Studios

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

FOLLOWING award-winning, sell-out runs at Edinburgh Fringe 2017 and Soho Theatre, Dust is transferring to the West End.

Written and performed by Milly Thomas (Clique, BBC3, Clickbait and A First World Problem, Theatre503), it runs at Trafalgar Studios from September 4 to October 13, 2018.

I’ve been dead for three days.

Life, Alice thinks, isn’t worth living. So she kills herself. But she’s stuck. A fly on the wall. Forced to watch the aftermath of her suicide and its ripple effect on her family and friends, Alice quickly learns that death changes people. And discovers that death isn’t the change she hoped for.

Dust is directed by Sara Joyce, whose credits include The Scar Test (Soho Theatre) and Act Without Words I and Rough For Theatre II (Old Red Lion Theatre).

Set design is by Anna Reid, with sound design by Max Perryment and lighting design by Jack Weir.

NB: Dust contains themes of a graphic nature and includes depictions of self-harm and suicide and is therefore suitable for ages 18+.

Running Time: 1 hour 15 minutes.

Also at Trafalgar Studios: Tracy Letts’ blackly comic thriller Killer Joe, starring Orlando Bloom (until August 18); Steven Dietz’s Lonely Planet (until July 7); Buckland Theatre Company’s Two For The Seesaw ( July 12 to August 4); and the West end transfer of Natasha Gordon’s debut play, Nine Night (December 1, 2018 to February 9, 2019).
