Fri 5 May | 8.00pm | £16.00 | £14 [Conc] 

Multiple Five Star hit at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe! The new bible-black comedy from Perrier Award nominee Owen O'Neill starring Olivier Award winner Guy Masterson and Alan McKee [Game of Thrones].

Undertakers, Welshman Eurig, and Coleraine man, Connor have depended on death for a living, but even that has let them down. Charles Sterling's burial offers them a lifeline, but will they take it? As they endlessly await the client of the corpse in the mysteriously heavy coffin, they ruminate on love, death and the meaning of life. ‘Waiting for Godot’ meets ‘The Dumb Waiter’ meets ‘Six Feet Under’!

‘One of the most humane and satisfying theatre shows on the Fringe, as well as what must be one of the funniest, with a powerful belly-laugh in almost every other line.’ The Scotsman

‘Laugh-out-loud drama at its very best!’ One4Review

‘Outstanding comedy writing. A masterclass in comic timing.’ Ed’ Guide

This event takes place in our Studio Theatre with an unreserved, tiered seating layout.
