    Brand new company Mulch Productions presents a darkly comic musical play inspired by the true story of Jeanne Pouchain: a woman, very much alive, declared legally dead.

    In 2016, Jeanne Pouchain’s passport application is declined. Her identification documents are rejected and her bank records have disappeared. Upon investigation, she discovers she has been declared legally dead in a courtroom where she was not present. She finds herself in the middle of a Kafkaesque nightmare trying to prove something that should be painfully obvious: she is very much alive.
    Greedily burning through theatrical styles and genres, we delve into this puzzling, fascinating and heartbreaking true story with music, clowning and movement.

    Primarily developed as part of the ColLab23 Festival at LAMDA.

    “British theatre would be completely stymied without tiny, under-resourced venues such as CPT, which are a critical part of the theatre ecology.”
