Colder Than Here
Laura Wade’s heart-breaking journey through love, loss and laughter earned the playwright a Critics’ Circle Theatre Award and an Olivier Award nomination. COLDER THAN HERE is an offbeat comedy about finding light even in the darkest of times.
Myra’s typically middle-class family are scarily normal in their eccentricities, especially when it comes to dealing with her illness. The boiler is on the blink, the cat’s gone missing and the perfect funeral needs planning but her husband Alec would rather bury his head in a newspaper while daughters Harriet and Jenna have their own problems. Myra might be busy researching flatpack coffins and creating a PowerPoint presentation of her dying wishes, but her last big project is to fix her family.
