A GAMBLER'S GUIDE TO DYING

By Gary McNair
Directed by Gareth Nicholls
With Gary McNair
What are the odds of living an extraordinary life? This is the story of one boy's granddad who won a fortune betting on the 1966 soccer World Cup and, when diagnosed with cancer, gambled it all on living to see the year 2000. A Gambler's Guide to Dying is an intergenerational tale of what we live for and what we leave behind.

Gary McNair's multi award-winning solo show opens in New York following highly acclaimed, sold-out runs at Spoleto Festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Adelaide Festival, and London's off-West End.
