What Doesn't Kill You [Blah Blah] Stronger

5 - 9 February 2019 His Majesty's Theatre, Downstairs at The Maj

Presented by Aces at The Maj, part of the FRINGE WORLD Festival

A river guide gets swallowed by a hippopotamus…and survives.

A British stewardess makes it through not one, not two, but three shipwrecks, including the maiden voyage of the ill-fated Titanic.

An Alabama housewife gets hit by a meteorite and lives to tell the tale!

These true stories and more make up What Doesn't Kill You [blah blah] Stronger, a love letter to misfortune, and a tribute to those unlucky (or lucky?) souls who managed to escape it. A unique and hilarious experience not to be missed.
