Elvis Died of Burgers is made and performed by the four BLINK directors who love food. If they’re not eating; they’re talking about it, dreaming about it, and now…dancing, rapping and rhyming about it.

Take a seat at their table as the cast spill the tea on their food stories. Watch as BLINK deep dive into the events of Elvis, The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, at the end of his life with their signature sensory and often bizarre tangents…Good Food Gospel anyone? Can they figure out the thin line between the humour and tragedy of overeating?

Elvis Died of Burgers has a non-linear narrative. It uses semi-improvised dance, theatre and spoken word to create an exciting ‘edge of your seat’ experience for audience and cast alike.

The show explores themes of food, overeating and death. The show includes swearing and scenes of a mildly sexual nature.

We believe in making our shows accessible to as many people as possible.

We offer tickets on a Pay What You Can basis for the majority of performances throughout the year. Tickets usually start at £8, and we have recommended pricing to help you to choose a price that works for you.

We know that ticket price is a huge barrier for some, and the Pay What You Can model offers people who can afford to pay the recommended price or more the chance to support others who can’t.
