This performance of We're Gonna Die has passed on... But don't worry - you can check back for another day! We look forward to seeing you at another performance and on future Flying V adventures!


We're Gonna Die
REGIONAL PREMIERE: Mortality may be the thing that binds us all together, but why be morbid when we can have a party instead? Join Flying V as we bring celebrated playwright Young Jean Lee's look at living life with death on the horizon to the stage! Flying V Company Member and fan favorite Farrell Parker (You, or Whatever I Can Get) fronts a live band in this mash-up performance that combines elements of a storytelling session, existential stand up routine, and rock concert to explore real-life experiences of facing down our inevitable demise. Directed by Josh Sobel, whose Chicago production drew critical acclaim and was picked up to run at Steppenwolf. We'll also have a different Opening Act each week to set the table - from musicians to magicians, stand up comics to storytellers. The result is a life-affirming show that explores the ways we're in this together even in our most isolating moments, and the one thing we all have in common: We're Gonna Die.  

Written by Young Jean Lee
Directed by Josh Sobel
