My Dead by Carolyn Hartvigsen

3 - 4 March 2023

My Dead is the story of a woman who finds her life through her dead. Uncovering letters and autobiographies from her deceased grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great grandparents, and even great-great-great grandparents, she is shocked to discover her ancestors from England, Wales, Scotland, Norway, Denmark, and Mexico are passing down shared experiences that will alter the course of her life... leading her to ask: "My Dead. Do I really know them?"

My Dead was originally developed as a 25 min thesis project at LAMDA in 2021. It has since developed into an hour long one woman play that is now embarking on a multi-country tour.

Reviews for My Dead


Hartvigsen is a wonderful storyteller


Hartvigsen’s writing is earnest and authentic, and her performance reaches out and inspires in a way that few plays do.
