Theatre The Sherling Studio


Death. A bit grim, isn't it. Morbid, macabre and even unmentionable, but does it have to be that  way?

Drawn together by their  shared fear of death, 'thanatophobes'  Lucy Nicholls and Antonia Beck invite you  to embark on a journey of discovery, contemplation  and courage. Take time to celebrate your own mortality,  laugh, cry, stick two fingers up at the grim reaper and  discover why talking about death is ultimately life affirming.    

Created in response to a provocative and unashamedly honest conversation about death, The Death Show looks to better understand our relationship with death and dying and why we struggle to accept our own mortality.

Written by Antonia Beck, Lucy Nicholls and Bernadette Russell  

Performed by Antonia Beck and Lucy Nicholls    

Directed by Bernadette Russell
