The story of a theatre student drawn to Paris after her mother’s death, where the city’s artistic, amorous and cultural hazards lead her to a bizarre near-fatal conclusion.

Paris, it seems, has its own plans for Jayne. Drawn there in an unforeseen way, she finds herself in a dizzying neighbourhood, studying at an intense theatre school, and falling in love with a Frenchman too beautiful to be real. She will disappear into the culture if it kills her. And one strange night, it nearly does. A literary theatrical experience based on the book by the same name.

‘Jayne Tuttle’s writing is a delicious delight.‘ – Christos Tsiolkas


Paris or Die will also be livestreamed on July 15, Friday, 8:30pm.
