I Should Have a Party For All The Thoughts I Didn't Say is a devised theatrical performance dedicated to the social awkwardness of grief, and a love letter to Russian writer Anton Chekhov. Staged site specific in a chapel, the performance is structured as a funeral and funeral after party, traversing from a deep well of grief to a riotous, tragicomic attempt to leave the tragedy behind. Storytelling that utilises everything from physical theatre to polyphonic singing, Source Material has devised a highly visual, deeply adventurous love letter to a celebrated playwright.
