By Laura Wade 

A poignant drama of love and loss

What do you do with yourself when you’ve been diagnosed with bone cancer and given nine months to live? If you’re Myra, you tackle it all with great gusto: you survey an assortment of natural burial sites, you give your husband and two daughters a Powerpoint presentation about your funeral and you buy your flatpack coffin then paint it.

Sounds gloomy? Colder Than Here is frequently poignant, but it is anything but gloomy.

In Laura Wade’s moving drama, the play’s affecting theme is counterpointed with scintillating wit and even occasional comedy as Alec, Jenna and Harriet come to terms with Myra’s imminent loss. While they struggle to express their shared love for Myra, they struggle even more with her (literally) down-to earth approach to her impending death:

“You’ve got to keep yourself busy when you’re off work with dying”.

And gradually, Myra’s example and encouragement help them to deal with the crises affecting their own lives, as well as the much larger crisis affecting Myra.

Directed by John Mackay, performances will be at 7.45pm on 9th – 17th February, 2018.
