About: Death Song

youneedme in association with New Diorama Theatre present Death Song, from the company who brought you Certain Dark Things and How It Ended.

Death Song is the story of a Mexican immigrant facing execution on death row in Nevada, USA in the early nineties.

Seven years earlier, Juan and his fifteen year old daughter Paulina are living alone on a trailer park south of Las Vegas, where the claustrophobic relationships that will lead to tragedy are forming.

Death Song moves between past and present; between the hot, static and synthetic spaces of the trailer park and the close confines of the prison cell, as Juan’s desperation to escape his fate, reaches fever pitch.

With a haunting live original soundtrack on cello and guitar, and performed by a cast of Puerto Rican, Basque, Catalan and English actors, Death Song is the tense, electric story of a Mexican man on death row in Nevada during the 1980s, and the events leading to his arrest for murder seven years earlier.


‘This theatre company is exciting and absolute triumph’
***** Three Weeks

‘Vivid, uncommonly sensitive dramatic entertainment. Beautifully realised’
**** The Times
