Death Song is the story of a Mexican man in Nevada, America, on death row in the 1980’s.

Newbury-based company You Need Me is performing the play at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton, next week.

Following last year’s run of Certain Dark Things, the group is performing at the theatre from November 1-2.

Seven years before the play is set, and living alone with his daughter, Paulina, Juan cleans casinos by night and washes cars by day. The fragile relationship between Paulina and an older man, and his own relationship with a younger woman have a theme of violence, which leads to a surprising conclusion.

Tickets cost £8 to £10 from the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton on (023) 8031 5500 or go to nuffieldtheatre.co.uk.
