Daniel Hit By A Train
Inspired by a Victorian collection of 53 true stories about people losing their lives in the attempt to save another, Daniel Hit By A Train tells each tragedy in turn, in all its heart-wrenching, comedic, vaudevillian glory. Sincere, but unafraid to raise a smile, Daniel Hit By A Train stands as a testimony to the human spirit and our abiding impulse to help each other.
Daniel Hit By A Train and The Catastrophe Trilogy are currently touring in Europe.
Commissioned by: Wiener Festwochen, Austria; brut Wien, Austria; the Barbican BITE, London; The Arches, Scotland; Nuffield Theatre, Lancaster; Farnham Maltings, UK; and Leeds Met Studio Theatre, UK. Research and development, and touring, supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Also supported by The Basement, Brighton.
