Summary

Hallway-dwelling Semyon is unemployed and disheartened with life. When his last hope at turning his life around disappears he decides to commit suicide, only to find that a number of people would like him to die on their behalf. On the night of the deed, a party grows towards a glorious climax.

Moira Buffini has freely adapted Nikolai Erdman’s The Suicide, which was banned by Stalin before a single performance, to create Dying For It.

Dying For It premiered at the Almeida Theatre, London, in March 2007.
