'Colder than Here' Play - Assisted Dying

 “Colder Than Here” A play by Laura Wade

Dorset Humanists has invited the Taboo Theatre Company to perform "Colder Than Here" at the Moordown Centre at 2.30pm on Saturday 20th March.

This play has been touring the South West and London, as part of the Trust's 'The Art of Dying (and Living) - What Makes a Good Death' project. It has played in hospices, a prison, to young adults and to the general public as part of the educational programme.

It.s particularly relevant at present with controversy surrounding assisted dying  in the media spotlight. The play deals with a mother dying of cancer and how she helps her dysfunctional family to cope with their forthcoming loss, and separation by the choices and responsibility she takes - which include looking for a green burial.

'Laura Wade's play is a 90-minute masterpiece, a jewel, dark but translucent. It is a play of love, death and grief that is hardest to bear, because it begins before the loved one dies... this moving, funny, brave and beautiful play. Sunday Times'

Tickets are £5 and will available at our AGM on 13th March, or from Jane B (phone 01202 428506) or on the door on 20th March or by Paypal below:
