Laura Wade

Published by Dramatists Play Service

1 Male 3 Female

Nobody can ignore the fact that Myra is dying

But life goes on ...

There are boilers to be fixed

Cats to be fed

And the perfect funeral to be planned

As a mother researches burial spots and biodegradable coffins, her family is forced to communicate with her

And each other, as they face up to an unpredictable future


"Wade's original and beautifully observed play balances raw emotion with a deliciously delicate black humour" ~ Aleks Sierz, The Stage * * * * *

"Laura Wade's play is set in the limbo between a death sentence and the death itself. How does knowledge of one's imminent demise, or that of a loved one, affect the living of one's life?" ~ Guardian

"Laura Wade's play is a 90-minute masterpiece, a jewel, dark but translucent. It is a play of love, death and grief: the grief that is hardest to bear, because it begins before the loved one dies" ~ John Peter, Sunday Times * * * * *
