Edinburgh Smash Hit Sometimes I Laugh Like My Sister Opens Summer Season at The Met

Following a smash-hit debut at the Edinburgh Festival, Rebecca Peyton welcomes us to her world in a passionately political, sharply comical and painfully personal performance, Sometimes I Laugh Like My Sister, at The Met on Wednesday 4 May at 7.30pm.

Since her big sister, BBC journalist Kate Peyton, was murdered in Somalia, Rebecca has had rather a strange time. Crafting a moving and often comic tapestry of private moments from a public tragedy, Rebecca tells her own story of a courageous journalist and a loving big sister, whom she misses.

\”…it will have you veering from laughter to sadness and still leave you wanting more.\” The Public Review, Edinburgh Fringe

Rebecca places Kate\’s death in a wider context as she cites similar deaths and explores the career suicide journalists fear if they speak out about dangerous assignments. She also speaks about the taboo of talking about death in public or with friends, and in behaving a way that others deem appropriate.

**** \’A reminder of how almost absurdly precious life is\’ – Times

Tickets are £10, £6 concessions and £5 for under 26s. To book or for more information please call the ticket office on 0161 761 2216 or go on line www.themet.biz
