Colder than Here
By Laura Wade | Directed by Emma Gersch
“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.”
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.
Laura Wade’s beautifully poised family drama was first performed at the Soho Theatre, London, in 2005. It was described by the Sunday Times as “a 90-minute masterpiece, a jewel, dark but translucent”.
