New York playwright and singer Young Jean Lee presents the London premiere of her pop cabaret-cum theatre show ‘We’re Gonna Die’. Lee performs monologues as well as sings with her band Future Wife, having also written the piece, which is about the inevitablity of death. David Byrne, who appears on the recorded version, delivers guest vocals as the play spins between monologues and surprisingly uplifting and beautifully melodic songs performed by Lee’s band Future Wife. Crushing existential dread never sounded this euphoric.
