Autumn 2017

Saturday 10th February 2018 Outside the Box – A live show about Death

Funny, wise and taboo busting; Outside The Box confronts the 'Elephant in the room' with grace and humour, asking its audience to embrace mortality and look on the bright side of life, with a weave of untold and surprising stories, a hint of history and some pithy commentary on the funeral industry (from one who knows!).
