Colder Than Here archive"I walked in and she' s sat in the coffin. In the middle of the living-room floor and she's - she's watching telly and laughing." A play about discovering life in the midst of death, Colder Than Here is funny, truthful and heartbreaking. Myra has been given six months to live so she sets out to plan her funeral with all the energy you might use to plan the perfect wedding. As her reluctant family are drawn in to the plans, they begin to learn how to live together. Nobody can ignore the fact that Myra is dying but in the meantime life goes on. There are boilers to be fixed, cats to be fed and the perfect funeral to be planned. As a mother researches burial spots and buying coffins, her family are finally forced to communicate with her, and each other.
