Nobody can ignore the fact that Laura is dying but in the menatime life goes on. There are boilers to be fixed, cats to be fed and the perfect funerals to be planned. As a mother researches burial spots and bio-degradable coffins, her family are finally forced to communicate with her, and each other, as they face up to an unpredictable future.
Laura Wade's beautifully poised family drama was first performed at the Soho Theatre in London in 2005. It was described by The Sunday Times as "a go-minute masterpiece, a jewel, but translucent".
