This “powerful, moving and incredibly funny!” play by Az2B Theatre Company shows the importance of including friends, family & children in the preparation for death.
It seeks to de-mystify the death process itself, challenges taboos, explores what a “good death” means and for whom and shows the importance of sensory connections at end of life.
So often we don’t know what to do or how to behave when our loved ones are dying.
Using people and puppets, AZ2B Theatre Company ingeniously brings to life the complexities of fulfilling the wishes of a dementia patient at the end of their life.
Among the hard conversations there’s also joy, love and beauty to be found at the most difficult of times.
The theatre performance is followed by an after-show discussion.
Suitable for adults and children age 10 upwards.
In partnership with Age UK Sheffield, Gathering Ground and Festival of Debate.
This event is one of a series of free community events running throughout May, enabled by Compassionate Sheffield, to help explore why dying matters.
