Equally as emotionally devastating as it is hilarious, Dust, written and performed by Milly Thomas, is an extremely human account of mental illness. For anyone who has been affected by mental health problems, Dust is real. Heartbreakingly real. As someone who has suffered herself, Thomas has bared her soul in bringing Dust to life.
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.
Fresh from an award-winning, sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe 2017, Dust by Milly Thomas (Clique, BBC3; Clickbait and A First World Problem, Theatre503), directed by Sara Joyce, now transfers to London’s Soho Theatre.
