When I Began Dying.


3 F


When I Began Dying is a story of journey, death, and rebirth. Beginning in the middle of her dying, we meet Linn; a head strong artist who lacks direction and struggles to discover who she is and what she really wants. Then there is Dead Linn, who is also Linn, but she’s dead(duh). Dead Linn finds herself back in the land of the living to save herself from certain horrible death, but in the process she finds herself in a battle with alive Linn, past demons, and fate itself. Will she be able to overcome her own death and change history? Do Black Cats really know all your secrets? Must the moment of death be pinpointed to the moment we leave earth? Or does the dying begin much earlier..
Do we really know when it ends? If it 
The world of the play is one of whimsy and liminality for as Linn gets closer to her final moments, the world she has known gets farther away from any familiar reality. Together, Linn and Dead Linn must conquer their fears, come to terms with their past, and find the way through their inevitable ending.
