Breathing Corpses archiveWhether you're a teenage chambermaid or a middle-aged storage unit manager, it's always hard to forget the smell of a corpse. Especially if it's your second of the week, or if they keep turning up at work. A multi award-winning playwright and clinical observer of humankind, Laura Wade's mastery of character and humour has never been more evident than in this brilliantly complex puzzle of life and death. Skipping between dark comedy and fiendish thriller, Breathing Corpses is as enigmatic and arresting as its stone cold protagonists.
