Don't Waste Your Bullets on the Dead


A new play by Freddie Machin

Vault Festival 2016


Everyone expects Ellen Billington’s new play to be the theatrical sensation of the year. Everyone except Ellen. In the grip of writer’s block and with her deadline fast approaching Ellen finds inspiration in a surprising place. A sharp and witty comedy about the personal sacrifices people make in the name of art and whether they’re worth it.
