A Matter of Life and Death

Directed by Jan Palmer Sayer
Assistant Director Chris Janes
1st – 9th November 2013

The most wonderfully romantic fantasy on earth… or anywhere else!

It is 1945. A young airman jumps to certain death from his burning aircraft. His last words are to a girl he has never met: “I love you, June. You are life and I’m leaving you.“ Following an angelic blunder, caused by a classic English pea-souper, Peter Carter miraculously survives and finds June in the flesh. But things are not so simple. To stay alive, Peter is forced to take himself, and the heavenly authorities, to the Universal Court of Appeal.

Inspired by Powell and Pressberger’s 1946 film, this wildly romantic tale was first performed at the National Theatre in May 2007.
