Renee Norris on Discussion Panel Communicate - a play about loss and grief
A play with loss and grief at the heart as the theme.
“I should have mentioned it before, my Mum, she, last year, she passed.”
James is suffocated by his past. Heather is focusing on the nursery. Based on true events, this is one couple’s journey through bereavement, love, grief, pregnancy, superheroes and enforced pen maintenance. It deals with the importance of talking about how you feel and not letting your past determine your future. From award-nominated Sheepish Productions, this is an intimate and gripping story about life and death, developed in association with Cruse Bereavement Care.
“…brilliant show. Moving, real, funny, thought-provoking and intriguing. Best of all it dealt with a 'difficult issue' but with characters you care about.” – Tom Bailey, Organiser of Love Arts Leeds
“Bloody lovely, heart-breaking and funny” - Jo West (playwright)
“So powerful and moving” - audience member (Theatre Deli, Sheffield)
Sheepish Productions' first play, 'Shadow On Their Wall', received a best new writing nomination and glowing reviews from Fringe Guru and York Mix Mag. Their second play, a black comedy called 'The Last Motel', also received positive reviews.
