When The Light Leaves

Death is wild and unpredictable, when it comes to the end of my life, my trust is with myself.

Dan’s dreaming of dead ducks and cartoon skeletons. He’s also dying. Liam’s doing his best to be supportive, his sister has good intentions and the nurse is trying to provide the comfort prescribed in the rule book. But none of them can give him what he needs. With access to assisted dying imminent, everyone has an opinion in how you live and die. It’s time for Dan to choose how he goes.

I know from close observation that Rory Godbold understands the brutal nuances of this issue in ways that very few can claim. He brings a perspective to it, both as creator and as witness, which has the unmistakable ring of truth. Nothing in performance is more powerful than the truth.
