"hail mum, full of life.
we are with thee.
blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy body."
Tiffany's mum got hit by a Birdseye truck on the M25. There’s family to call and a coffin to order, but first she has to talk to her Dad – and for some reason that's the toughest thing on her to-do list.
Meanwhile, an oozing paper bag on the doorstep holds a dying wish that will either bring a FATHER AND daughter together, or drive them further apart.
In her surreal new play about grief, parenting, and alternative meat, Sarah Kosar (Spaghetti Ocean, Royal Court Live Lunch) asks how far we can be pushed by love and obligation.
