Funeral Play: A Wake In Progress


  • Arthur Cotterell Theatre Main House
  • Thu 12 Jul, 9pm
  • Presented by Fine Mess Theatre

A young woman is dying.

‘At my funeral I sort of think, assume really, that my brother will be crying. But I won’t know, will I?’

A brand new work from previous IYAF Best of the Fest winners that uses both scripted scenes and audience interaction to create a completely different play every night. A funny, moving and thought-provoking show about our attitudes to dying and what we really mean to those we love.

Fine Mess Theatre first appeared at IYAF in 2014 when their debut show was selected Best of the Fest. Since then they have toured work throughout the UK winning various awards and been supported by IYAF as a Creative Talent Company. This show is a collaboration between former Fine Mess Artistic Director Joel Samuels and the Lab Collective, interactive and immersive theatre makers based in South London.
