Event Info

In the ‘60s Walt Disney was rumoured to have frozen himself to cheat it. In the ‘90s Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep accidentally dodged it. Today, we do everything we can not to look like we’re getting near it. Death is the last big taboo, and we are here to break it.

In a show filled with stories, music, and an explanation as to why no decent death jokes exist, we face death head-on and consider whether, actually, our lives could be made richer by talking about it.

Hannah Whittingham is an actor, producer and writer whose West End credits include The Last 5 Years (Apollo Theatre) and The Sound of Music (London Palladium), and who has produced extensively for the BBC and ITV.

A writer of documentaries, this show is dedicated to the commissioners who never quite gave death the green light.
