We’re Gonna Die is a cabaret-style musical written by experimental NYC playwright Young Jean Lee that celebrates the unifying nature of human mortality. Equal parts stage musical and rock concert, We’re Gonna Die juxtaposes tales of everyday suffering with uplifting indie pop songs. In this 60 minute one-act, the Singer (the only speaking character in the play) directly addresses the audience to share her experiences of tragedy and encourage us that nobody needs to suffer alone. On the contrary: we’re all suffering all the time, albeit in our own personalized ways. The Singer wants to assure you that your pain is totally normal, that life is inevitably tragic at times, and that, yes, we’re all going to die.

We’re Gonna Die premiered in 2011 at Joe’s Pub in New York City as the 11th play in the hallowed 13P playwriting coalition. Young Jean Lee performed the role of Singer in that production backed by her band Future Wife (who helped write the six songs in the show). Since then, notable productions include the 2015 production at London’s Southbank Centre – for which David Byrne of Talking Heads sang the songs while Lee performed the monologues – and Company One Theatre’s touring co-production with American Repertory Theatre in 2016. Jake

Nice produced the North Texas regional premiere of We’re Gonna Die in 2017 starring Sammy “Rat” Rios as the Singer.

Performed in the Sixth Floor Studio Theatre.

Part of AT&T Performing Arts Center's 2017-18 Elevator Project.
