The Dead House

This event has ended

The New Theatre, Thursday 28th September - Saturday 14th October

“We are gathered at the dead house. Such a morbid name, I mean, there is still another person alive in that place, my granny. My grandfather’s cold and lifeless body is laid out so that we can all have a final moment to say goodbye. “Goodbye grandad”, as if he can even hear us.”

Patrick is an Irish Traveller who hasn’t been home in 10 years but returns from self-exile for his grandfather’s funeral.

Comedian and writer Martin Warde’s debut play is a powerful and moving dark comedy that explores complex themes of family, tradition, and self- acceptance.

Set in the house of the deceased, the play is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the importance of finding one’s voice and identity.

World premiere.
