Christopher Brett Bailey


A motor-mouth collage of spoken word and storytelling. Tales of paranoia, young love and ultra-violence. From the desk of Christopher Brett Bailey comes a spiralling odyssey of pitch black humor and nightmarish prose. With echoes of Lenny Bruce, William Burroughs, beat poetry and B-movies, THIS IS HOW WE DIE is a prime slice of surrealist trash, an Americana death trip and a dizzying exorcism for a world convinced it is dying. Christopher Brett Bailey is a performer, theater-maker and musician. His first solo show THIS IS HOW WE DIE received the Arches Brick Award and an Off West End Award.
