Eleanor wants a child. Richard would oblige if he could, but he's too busy running the Dead Funny Society.
When British comedy heroes Frankie Howerd and Benny Hill turn up their toes in the same week the society gather for a celebration of hilarity and laughter. But Eleanor’s grin masks a grimace.
When your marriage is deader than either Morecambe or Wise it's hard to see the funny side of things.
A beautiful tragicomedy, expect the be in fits of laughter as the wonderfully talented Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd), Steven Pemberton (The League of Gentleman), Ralf Little (The Royle Family, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps), Emily Berrington (The Inbetweeners 2) and Rufus Jones (W1A) take Terry Johnson's bitingly funny play to the next level. This is a limited season, so best to book as soon as possible for this unmissable show.
