The Death Show and post show discussion
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 and performed by Antonia Beck and Lucy Nicholls
Director Bernadette Russell
Following this 2.30pm performance, join Antonia Beck, Lucy Nicholls, Carrie Weekes and Fran Glover (Directors, A Natural Undertaking) and Diane Parkes (John Taylor Hospice) for a post-show discussion. They are all part of BrumYODO, a community collective aiming to encourage open and honest conversations about death and dying. The talk will last approximately 30 minutes.
