Young Eleanor Hush awakes to find herself at her own funeral

…with absolutely no memory of how she got there. Presiding over the service is Driscoll Bleak, funeral director and laconic guide to the post-mortem world. To find out how she died, she must confront the realities of death that lurk in The Shadow. The second show from Gimcrack Productions, this explosive, neo-vaudevillian offering delves into death, dying, and the spectre of mortality that haunts us all. In a dizzying series of vignettes, songs, dances and sketches, Eleanor will encounter a fair few incongruous characters, dance the Rigor Mortis Tango, and end up challenging some of her – and our – deep-rooted preconceptions about the human body and its inevitable end. Grotesque, joyful and disturbing; join Eleanor on a quest from which there may be no return… Over 18s only. Valid ID required.
