Dicing with Dr Death
One week down and two to go. ‘Dicing with Dr Death‘ premieres at the 2015 EdFringe.
There have only ever been nine Dr Deaths, but with most of his namesake’s dead, and the Russian serving 12 life sentences in Siberia, Australia’s own euthanasia doctor Philip Nitschke is now master of ceremonies, teaching the funny side of the right to die debate.
From his involvement in the deaths of four real-life patients under Australia’s Rights of the Terminally Ill Act, to his fondness for the do-it-yourself approach, Philip takes his audience on a rip-roaring ride through his 20 years working with life’s one certainty: death.
Dr Death has been moonlighting on BBC Hardtalk, in between visiting the MET at Charing Cross Police Station. Luckily the police have seen sense and have decided not to prosecute Philip for holding the 2013 Exit Workshop at Dragon Hall. But will they do the same after the Edinburgh show? Come along & decide for yourself.
