“What happens after you die?”
“Well, that’s the great mystery isn’t it?”
“What happens after you die…”
A man wakes up in a room, drunk, scared and alone, with no idea where he is or how he got there; until he meets Death. Death might be able to answer that for him. In Teddy Morris’s playwriting debut, 'You’re Dead, Mate' is a sharp-witted and volatile journey through the final stages of life and an exploration to see what can be found amidst the chaos of coming to terms with mortality.
Teddy was introduced to the theatre as a member of ENCORE Youth Theatre, the sister theatrical group of the Discarded Nut Theatre Company. Following this, he went on to perform with The Discarded Nut Theatre Company professionally, playing The Creature in Noël Jones and Doug Revolta’s adaptation of ‘Frankenstein’ and Hamlet in ‘Hamlet, Prince of Denmark’. In 2017, Teddy joined the National Youth Theatre and moved to London to pursue further writing and acting opportunities, most recently writing a stand-alone monologue for The Pleasance Theatre’s ‘Words in Progress’ event and performing with Founding Fall Theatre Company.
