Thursday 24th November 7.45pm / Studio Hub


In an age where death and grieving are medicalised out of existence. The UK’s most enduring theatre double act reclaim humankind’s last taboo from imminent eradication in a paper-fine portrait of a timeless trio: cursed to eternal life without eternal youth. Amid fumbling, daily rounds of coffee, call centres and cat food, their rants, dribbles, pills and cough bombs litter an ambling blend of symbolist mysticism and synaesthesia that has the fear of an ageing world population in its sights and oozes with the positivity of elderhood and good deaths.
