CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).

Jo Clifford explores the lives of an ordinary family who are aware that they are part of a story, and initially bemused by all the attention. The everyday concerns and events of their lives form the early part of the play - raising children, growing up, growing old. But all of this changes when Death comes calling. Plunged suddenly into a reality where they can no longer rely on the 'certainties' of existence, Joe, Mary, Kevin and Mazz must reassess their lives. Perspectives change and the things they cherish and regret are stripped of all the usual distractions and confusions. Jo's play presents a warm and uplifting look at how ordinary people deal with tragedy. It's a story that will resonate with anyone who has lost someone they love - and suggests that when we grieve it's for the good times that are past rather than the pain we feel now. Performers Angela Clerkin, Michael Fenton Stevens, Nick Finegan, Nicola Weston, Nigel Barrett, Eileen Nicholas.
