Daniel Kitson returns to the Everyman with new show

Daniel Kitson, a favourite of Liverpool audiences as well as the Edinburgh Comedy Festival, returns to the Everyman with his latest storytelling show The Interminable Suicide of Gregory Church, The story of a death postponed by life, from Wednesday 2 to Friday 4 February.  Following last year’s sell out performances of 66a Church Road at the Everyman and previous success with his storytelling shows C90 and The Impotent Fury of the Privileged, Daniel Kitson makes a welcome return to the Everyman before its redevelopment.

In The Interminable Suicide of Gregory Church, Kitson presents the story show which won him the fourth Edinburgh Festival Fringe First Award of his career in 2009. A fictional anecdote, the show is a funny, poignant and optimistic meditation on modern life.  Gregory had 57 letters to write. He’d never written that many letters, not in one go.  In fact, he’d never written a single letter and it was taking significantly longer than he’d anticipated. He’d started, full of optimism, curiously enough, at 9am and now here he was 8 hours later half way through letter twenty four. He glanced at his watch and then at the noose hanging over his head…Gregory sighed.

The Yorkshire-born performer has been a hit act at the Edinburgh comedy festival since his first show at the event in 2001 when he was nominated for the Perrier Award for his show Love, Innocence and the Word Cock. He went on to win the prestigious award the following year with his show Something and also received the Stage Award for best solo performance 2006 for C-90.

Since his early career Kitson has created a number of story shows alongside his stand-up routine, Stories of the Wobbly-hearted, C-90 and The Interminable Suicide of Gregory Church have all won Fringe First Awards, winning acclaim from critics and audiences alike in the process.

Kitson’s bittersweet and touching style never fails to end triumphantly and The Interminable Suicide of Gregory Church is certain to beguile fans and newcomers alike.
