How do you fight back when your own heart tries to kill you? For his 30th birthday @rtjpoet, healthy, gym-going 'ringmaster of spoken word' (ThreeWeeks), got an unexpected present - heart failure. Now, having battled back from death's brink, he explains how. This long-awaited, understandably delayed solo debut, a healthy prescription of cardiomyopoetry and anecdosage, asks: can almost dying actually improve your life? 'Fascinating, sobering, hilarious and ultimately uplifting' (New Scientist). 'Raw, at times graphic, and very funny' (BBC.co.uk/blogs/ouch). 'Impeccable wordsmith ... highly recommended' **** (FringeGuru.com). Director, Anthony Shrubsall. Graphics, www.patternfightperformance.com. Supported by Wellcome Trust.
