Written by Alice Birch and directed by Katie Mitchell.
“My mother always said to Live Big. Live as much as I could.”

Three generations of women.
For each, the chaos of what has come before brings with it a painful legacy.

Anatomy of a Suicide features Adelle Leonce (Torn, Royal Court), Hattie Morahan (A Doll’s House, Young Vic) and Kate O’Flynn (The Glass Menagerie, Duke of York’s) as women from three generations of the same family.

Writer Alice Birch (Revolt, She said, Revolt Again), continues her collaboration with director Katie Mitchell (2071, Cleansed) following Ophelias Zimmer last year, with this exploration of motherhood and the things we inherit.
