"For the record, I’ll defend your chink eyes if any fucker comes at you. I would."
This is a rumination on life after death - a conversation between a child and their estranged father - a loss and found.
Time circles round in this explosive new autobiographical multimedia production.
Completely conceptualised for the online world, Death at the Desktop is a deeply intimate and raw reflection on trauma, stolen identity, and fragmentation within a multicultural family.
When is forgiveness an impossibility?
Written and performed by: Milla Sutton

Commissioned and presented as part of Show Face Festival,
a non-profit showcase of new creative work.
"That piece was phenomenal. Heart-wrenching, emotive, and the camera angles were inspired, the whole thing was bloody great... You really pushed the boundaries of what I thought online performance can/could be."
"Wonderful to see so many innovative virtual theatre pieces @showfacefest this weekend! Particularly loved #Spinster and #DeathAtTheDesktop directed by @FromABTheatre... Incredible use of the digital medium to create aesthetic and narrative impact!"
- Maria Shury-Smith, Youth and Community Manager at Kiln Theatre
"Just wanted to say I finally got around to watching the 2 shows you directed for the Show Face Festival and that I loved both of them so much, congrats for making 2 awesome pieces of theatre during lockdown. Your style is so iconic and creative and it was really cool how diverse the 2 works were!"
