how to die of a broken heart
Heartbreak changed Femi’s body and life forever. This is her solo theatre show about love, illness, and not giving up.
Full of uncomfortable moments, full of truths, and full of laughs, How to Die of a Broken Heart is an intimate storytelling experience.
Through stories of her failed relationships, Femi lays bare the desperation so many of us feel when it comes to love, and invites us to both laugh at her mistakes, and accept our own. How to Die of a Broken Heart illuminates both the beauties and the dangers of loving someone, but ultimately reminds us that broken things can be mended: especially hearts.
