And end of life comedy
Mother is dying slowly, the wait is unbearable, the pressures insurmountable, the thoughts unbelievable. Surely a gesture towards God's bigger plan is needed? Sisters, Stella and Connie may be different from one another but share a common and profound love for their Mother. Can things really continue as they are?
"If you're going to see one play about the end of life make it this one, as you will laugh far more than you will cry." Rosemary Branch Theatre, 2016

9th of May at 7.15pm
Bosco Tent - Brighton Spiegeltent, Old Steine Pleasure Gardens, BRIGHTON BN1 1GY
Join newly-dead Eleanor Hush and her guide, Driscoll Bleak, on a journey into the heart of The Shadow.
Delve into death, dying, and the spectre of mortality that haunts us all.
The aim of this meeting is to harness the enthusiasm of our launch and work out what people would like to contribute as we stretch the forum out further into the public domain.
There have been some kind and exciting offers of help already - and we want to get together with all those who would like to be ACTIVELY INVOLVED in improving the way of death in Brighton with us!
Perhaps you would like to run a workshop by sharing creative skills, or helping people how to structure a ceremony, or share tips on running a successful crowd-funding campaign to cover funeral costs?
Can you share your perspective or a personal experience? Do you have contacts or ideas for how we can get broader press coverage of this important conversation?
Join us for our launch party - there will be an introduction and the film will be followed by a Q&A with local funeral directors and founders of Brighton Death Forum Cara Mair (ARKA) and Tora Colwill (The Modern Funeral).
Ask us anything about about death, dying, and funerals. We have practical information about cost-effective, self-help, and home funerals. The event will be followed by a drinks reception in the bar.
