Colder Than Here
TFTV Theatre Society presents Laura Wade's "Colder Than Here"
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 bio-degradable coffins, her family are finally forced to communicate with her, and each other, as they face up to an unpredictable future.
"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"
The play is an off-beat, anti-sentimental comedy about cancer. It is a ninety-minute masterpiece, a jewel, dark but translucent. It is a play of love, death, and grief: The grief that is hardest to bear, because it begins before the loved one dies.
