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.

 The Death Show is the result of a fascinating research project carried out by the artists, that included training as celebrants, an artists’ residency at an undertaker’s and spending time with hospice patients.

Created and performed by Antonia Beck and Lucy Nicholls

Directed by Bernadette Russell

Produced by Sarah-Jane Watkinson, Outer Circle Arts

“Brave, tenacious, funny and deeply thought provoking.” Claire Birch, Assistant Producer, RSC
