“★ ★ ★ ★ An unexpectedly funny and uplifting play about your own death. Elegant, dignified, skilfully put together” The Irish Times
This is the Funeral of Your Life is a heart-warming show about death and the challenges of living. It asks its audiences to leave behind the emails, the bills, the deadlines… the quest for recognition, fame and glory…
After all, we’re all dying anyway…
Following the critical acclaim and sell-out success of its premiere run in 2017, inventive theatre-maker Louise White brings her poignant and uplifting theatrical experience to venues across Ireland this February, with performances at the Everyman Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th February.
Three performers – a dancer, an actor and a mezzo soprano – create a playful environment that invites audiences to examine the possibilities around their own personal legacy including the fragility of life, families, humour and love; to play a game of imagination in a warm and supportive encounter with…themselves.
Theatre and performance maker Louise White excels in designing exciting and alternative experiences for audiences. Collaborations with different practitioners have included dancers, visual artists, culinary artists, composers, singers, actors and stage designers. Throughout her diverse theatrical career she has worked with performers and participants’ personal stories; interweaving them into the narrative of acclaimed productions such as Mother You in September 2015 and Way Back Home which won the Spirit of the Fringe in 2013.
Tickets for This is The Funeral of Your Life at The Everyman, Monday 25th – Tuesday 26th February, 8pm, are available from the Box Office, phone 021 4501 673, or online at everymancork.com
