You Must Be The One To Bury Me

Who are you? Who do you want me to be?

Emerging physical theatre company, Babel Theatre, present an original, quixotic piece of contemporary theatre about how we love and how we remember.

As Richard’s grasp on reality crumbles, the fantasies, memories and monsters of his recent relationship materialize in his flat around him, subjecting him to an onslaught of romantic terrorism.

This story of a modern day relationship looks at the complicated issues of the nature of memory, personal identity and loss. Focusing largely on the intangible nature of memory, it examines how we might remember an event differently to how it actually occurred. Winner of the ‘Best of Fest’ Award at International Youth Arts Festival.

“There is talent here that, given training and push, promises something interesting.” – The Observer

“Despite its ominous title, You Must Be The One To Bury Me is actually quite funny: rich with a well-timed levity… Ambitious, well-acted, well-produced, worthy of a viewing.” – The Reviews Hub

“We certainly have a cast who have more than demonstrated their abilities to deliver this clever and intricate play.” – North West End

“What I find intriguing about Babel’s approach to theatre is that they are clearly interested in telling stories about the contemporary world… At first you think this play is going to be an amiable romance; but it contained more than a drop of poison, if not outright terror.” – Jildy Sauce

“As well as writing and performing [Joseph] Lynch also directs in striking imaginative style… [he] is clearly a talent to watch as a director. The play remains one that audiences should seek out and proves Babel Theatre to be a very welcome addition to the Manchester theatre scene.” – Manchester Theatre Awards
