- British playwright and director Adam Brace has died age 43
British playwright and director Adam Brace has died age 43 just weeks before he was due to make his Broadway debut.
The sad news was shared by Soho Theatre, where he was an associate director.
The statement read: ‘It is with deep sadness we announce that our much-loved friend, colleague and client Adam Brace died on Saturday 29th April.
‘Adam was a director, co-creator, dramaturg, script editor and writer. He was a unique talent of our time, working with artists all over the world across theatre, comedy and performance.
‘With enormous range and variety, his work won many accolades and awards, though he was fiercely proud of all of his shows and the artists he worked with. He loved working with them, and everyone loved working with him.’
Mr Brace’s death comes just one month after it was revealed he would be making his debut New York’s Broadway, with Just For Us, starring his longtime colleague Alex Edelman.
In a heartbreaking tribute posted on Twitter yesterday, Mr Edelman wrote: ‘Adam Brace passed away on Saturday at the ludicrously unfair age of 43.
‘He was my closest collaborator for more than a decade, but more importantly, he was one of my closest friends.
‘I don’t feel ready to acknowledge the magnitude of this loss, but I already feel it.’
Mr Edelman is set to star in the one-man show, with the preview performance planned to begin on June 22 at the Hudson Theater, running until August 19.
He continued: ‘Adam directed every one of my solo shows – all three of which were conceived over beers with him on the same street in London – including Just For Us.
‘Adam’s laugh was distinctive and deep and my favorite sound. I sought it out again and again.’
