A dying man’s last wish: for his friends to create a show about death.
Will it be subtle? Will it be sophisticated? Probably not, but it’s his funeral. Literally.
Multi award-winning physical comedy company Ugly Bucket process the death of a friend in the only way they know how – through a kinetic maelstrom of outrageous clowning, personal testimony and a thumping technical soundtrack.
‘It’s fast, it’s funny and it plumbs the emotional depths exquisitely… exciting, innovative work.‘ – The Stage
The UNTAPPED Award winner and Edinburgh Fringe sell-out hit Good Grief is a paranormal physical performance of loss, and the memories left behind, brought to you by ‘one of the UK’s most exciting young theatre companies.’ (New Diorama)
