Life is No Laughing Matter

Life is No Laughing Matter

Camden People's Theatre · 21 NOV - 22 NOV

“Sometimes I think I have felt everything I’m ever gonna feel and from here on out, I’m not gonna feel anything new. Just lesser versions of what I’ve already felt.”

Overview

Life is No Laughing Matter is a performance about mental illness, suicide and radical cure attempts.

Part personal narrative, part social rant, part mess; Life is No Laughing Matter tells the exhausting and hilarious account of living with depression.

Demi was told to eat a banana a day and think happy thoughts. Inevitably she got worse. So she bought Yoko the dog to save her. In a generous and painfully honest performance, Demi talks of causes, cures, and what happens when you eat 56 bananas. Expect shit metaphors, co-dependency, holy water and the one and only Yoko Ono.

Critic reviews

Underneath the charm and the silliness, there is rage and resilience

Exeunt

Frank and direct autobiographical show about depression and suicide

The Stage

Nandhra gets maximum comic mileage from both in a show that has an appealing directness and real sadness and rage at the way mental illness is seldom treated as seriously as a broken leg
