One third of British adults think about death and dying at least once a week. Yet 77% of British adults find it difficult to talk about death. The play follows two sisters as they deal with the loss of the one constant in their lives. They confront what it means when someone you love dies, and discover how it can give you the freedom to live. Set in their Grandmother’s house, we follow the sisters as they explore the life their Gran lived. They realise more about themselves and each other than they ever knew when their Gran was alive.
A funny, uplifting play about life, death and family
Left Luggage showcases Gray’s lifelike and witty writing, allowing it to lead the action, with Burnett and Thomas becoming mouthpieces for a strong and contemporary script. A lovingly thought-through tribute to grandparents all-round.
