by Neil McPherson

Based on the poetry, letters and brief life of Charles Hamilton Sorley

Directed by Liz Carruthers

Following a sell-out West End run where it was nominated for an Olivier Award, It Is Easy To Be Dead is the story of Scotland’s greatest First World War poet.

When twenty-year-old Charles Hamilton Sorley is killed in action during the First World War, his devastated parents are left with only his letters and poems to remember him by. Using his extraordinary writings, together with music and songs of the period, It Is Easy To Be Dead is a tender portrait of a brief life filled with promise, cut short by the futility of war.
