As I mentioned back in September, the 2010-2011 St. Ann’s Warehouse season features the US premiere of comedian Daniel Kitson‘s The Interminable Suicide Of Gregory Church. The UK based Kitson, who is no stranger to Brooklyn, brings his latest one man show to St. Ann’s Warehouse starting Jan 6, 2011, in advance of a Jan 9, 2011 opening. Buy tickets here!

The show to see at the 2009 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, British Stand up comedian and storyteller, Daniel Kitson, brings the story of Gregory Church to St. Ann’s Warehouse for its American Premiere.

Gregory had fifty-seven 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 9 am 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.

Had he known how long suicide letters take, he thought, he wouldn’t have cancelled the milk for the morning.

The Interminable Suicide is a story of a death postponed by life.
