Colder than Here Summary

Colder than Here by Laura Wade

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 Soho Theatre, London.

Colder than Here Reviews

Laura Wade's play is a 90-minute masterpiece, a jewel, dark but translucent. It is a play of love, death and grief: the grief that is hardest to bear, because it begins before the loved one dies. FIVE STARS - John Peter, Sunday Times

-- John Peter * Sunday Times *

Wade's original and beautifully observed play balances raw emotion with a deliciously delicate black humour. - Aleks Sierz, The Stage
