We’re Gonna Die
By Young Jean Lee
Directed by Paige Hernandez
Streaming on demand June 14 – July 11, 2021

Bad things will happen to all of us. That’s a certainty in life, but it also means that none of us are alone. And while we can’t avoid breaking up, getting sick, and losing loved ones, we can sing a little song to feel a little better. Based on true stories of tragedies and traumas, Young Jean Lee creates an experience that is part one-woman stage play, part live-band rock concert, and totally life-affirming. We’re Gonna Die is a "goofily grim and oddly uplifting” (Vogue) meditation on the human experience, blending indie songs with down-to-earth storytelling to offer a simple but hopeful message: We are going to die…and it’ll be okay.

We’re Gonna Die  is sponsored by Doug and Lorraine Bibby and by the National Endowment for the Arts.
