Killing Rodger


National tour of play Killing Rodger includes panel discussion on 'assisted dying'

A play called Killing Roger, produced by the theatre company Sparkle and Dark and supported by the Wellcome Trust, is currently on a national tour.

As part of this tour the theatre company is holding a panel discussion on ‘assisted dying’ at The Greenwich Theatre on 17th June at 5.30pm. The event is designed to delve deeper into some of the issues raised by the piece. It will last for approximately 90 minutes and will be followed by a ticketed performance of Killing Roger at 8pm. 

The event itself is free and will be chaired by the broadcaster and journalist Sheena Macdonald.

The panel includes Lawrence Illsley (co-writer of Killing Roger), Sarah Wootton (Chief Executive of Dignity in Dying), Dr Kevin Yuill (author of ‘Assisted Suicide: The Liberal, Humanist Case Against Legalisation’), Leslie Close (editor of ‘Assisted Dying – Who makes the final decision?'), and Professor Patrick Stone (Professor of Palliative Medicine at the University of London).
