AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'An award-winning playwright unexpectedly dies.

'Can his final play be staged tactfully and tastefully? Is dousing an actor in petrol too much?

'The play within a play, Minnie and Mona Play Dead, tells the story of two friends: one wants to make believe they're cheeky unicorns, and the other wants to die. Like... really die.

'Through a sly combination of autobiography, slapstick and satire, Minnie and Mona Play Dead delves into the rough ground unearthed when everyone around you wants to leave. Forever.

'This captivating black comedy explores friendship, fantasy and fatality.' (Production summary)
