It's a Wonderful Death

Programme for It's a Wonderful Death

Written by Kevin Windle

Staged by Hook Players in 2016

Directed by Ian Trodd

Produced by Elizabeth Knight

Stage managed by Paul Teuma

It’s Andrew Bailey’s 47th birthday and all he wants is a quiet night in with his wife Christine. Well, that and full control of the television. However, his plans are ruined when Death himself appears in the living room and demands that the couple accompany him to the other side.

Andrew and Christine are far from happy with the arrangement and request more time. Death, being a decent enough chap, is more than willing to give them their day in court.

But can the couple accept the consequences of their continued existence? Or will the testimonies of a flirtatious P.A, a dizzy pizza delivery girl, and a lecherous bingo caller convince them that it really would be a Wonderful Death?
