Dolly Wants to Die

Written By Helen Monks

Developed with The Lowry and The Civic in Barnsely

‘They say life’s a bitch. I say: death is. So give me a hand getting this toaster in the bath?’

Meet Dolly: a potty-mouth, chain-smoking toy doll. She can sing, dance, throw a tea party like a bitch – literally, anything! Except, that is, the one thing she wants most in the world. Dolly can’t die.

A victim of Cameron’s Britain, this doll is done playing nice. Presenting first world problems in an imaginary world this offbeat comedy – through music, storytelling and stand-up – explores the peril of entering adulthood and the absolute ball ache of being alive.
