This show was made as a way of dealing with my fathers death and funeral.
Working in theatre, I am primed to absorb ceremony and ritual at every chance, but seeing the life of my father presented in front of me during his funeral was one of the most harrowing and life affirming things I’ve experienced. I wanted to ask what makes up a person and how we remember them.
This is the Funeral of Your Life
This is the Funeral of your Life premiered in Project Arts Centre, Dublin, in November 2017.
