About the show

Caroline Horton & Co and China Plate present 

All of Me

Hello - I thought I'd introduce myself properly - As is polite."

Written and performed by Olivier Award nominee Caroline Horton - an intimate and absurd exploration of wanting to live, wanting to die and what can happen if we sit together with the dark.

Grudgingly hopeful, occasionally funny, Caroline reunites with director Alex Swift (Mess) to bring you an unapologetically dark show about dark things.

Age guidance: 14+

Content Warning: All of Me contains themes of depression and suicide.
