documentary drama uncovering the forgotten secrets and atrocities of
a denied genocide.”

Directed by Tommo Fowler, it runs from 21 April to 16 May 2015.

Following several characters through these traumatic events, the play
includes “eye-witness reportage, images, music, poetry from Armenia’s
greatest poets, and verbatim survivors testimonies”.

The cast comprises Kate Binchy, Jilly Bond, Bevan Celestine, Siu-See
Hung, Tamar Karabetyan, Tom Marshall and Simon Yadoo.

I Wish To Die Singing is part of the Finborough’s occasional The
Great War 100 series of plays written about, or during, the conflict.
