bright colours only
Written & performed by Pauline Goldsmith
This once-in-a-lifetime theatrical event was a huge hit at the Fringe back in the days when Pauline Goldsmith could squeeze into a size ten shroud, and her bucket list was that wee bit smaller. Since then she has toured from Belfast to Brazil in a hearse… and now our dearly departed is back!
Sadly missed after more than a decade pushing up the daisies, Pauline resurrects her quintessential Irish wake show that celebrates the struggle to be ourselves in life… and in death. Drawing on the memories of a Belfast childhood, the Stage Best Actress award-winner is a tour-de-force in this hilarious and heartfelt journey to the edge of oblivion.
You are cordially invited to join her and raise a glass of the hard stuff - in the comfort of her Front Room, in a shipping container, on George Street.
Tea, sympathy and sandwiches will also be provided.
