Send Me No Flowers

Event Details

Send Me No Flowers transports you to 1962. This show is bursting with 1960s colour and charm while simultaneously celebrating voices that were marginalized at the time, in particular, that of women in the domestic sphere. This is set against the backdrop of everyone’s favourite humorous subject — death. Each character in this play faces the supposed reality of George’s death in their own unique way, some healthy, some not so much.

Director Emma Graveson hopes that this play inspires audiences to reflect on living a good life, dying a good death, and celebrating the people who make that possible. Graveson wants to “put the fun back in funeral! And this is no laughing matter — we are all dead serious here.”
