Graciela would really like everyone to stop dying. After the scarring loss of her beloved dog Buster at the age of five, Graciela decides that no one she loves will ever die. But stopping death is easier said than done. Time rolls on inescapably and, as she grows, Graciela will, like everyone else, gain and lose the people most important to her to the eternal absence of mortality. Wickedly funny and deeply humane, A Brief List of Everyone Who Died tells the story of all the deaths that make up a life. An online rehearsed reading of A Brief List of Everyone Who Died was shown by the Finborough Theatre in 2021, and was a finalist for the OffWestEnd Awards OnComm Award. Jacob Marx Rice’s play Chemistry, also directed by Alex Howarth, was critically acclaimed at the Finborough Theatre in 2019, and is currently in pre-production for a movie adaptation.
