All of Me: The Audio

Written by Caroline Horton
Directed by Alex Swift
Sound produced and designed by Elena Pēna

Recorded in Caroline’s living room during lockdown, All of Me: The Audio is an intimate, absurd exploration of wanting to live, wanting to die and what can happen if we sit together with the dark.

Adapted from the grudgingly hopeful, occasionally funny, multi- award-winning stage show, Caroline, director Alex Swift and sound designer Elena Peña bring you a dark audio trip about dark things.

★★★★★ “this is a show that grabs you by the scruff of the neck and shakes you, first with laughter, then with dread, then finally with a sense of awe at both the darkness and the light within us all.”The Independent

Winner of The Mental Health Fringe Award 2019 presented by the Mental Health Foundation in partnership with The Scotsman and The Tron Theatre and Winner of The Stage Award for Excellence 2019.

This audio project was funded by Arts Council England.

The original stage production was commissioned by Cambridge Junction and The Yard and supported by UCL Culture. Our additional commissioning partners were: Harlow Playhouse, Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Theatr Iolo, ARC Stockton Arts Centre, The Brewhouse Arts Centre Burton, Camden People’s Theatre and Folkestone Quarterhouse with support from Battersea Arts Centre, artsdepot, Midlands Arts Centre and In Good Company.

The stage show was due to tour in Spring 2020 and has been postponed to 2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
