All Ages

'Colder Than Here' is an anti-sentimental off-beat comedy about cancer.
It brings us to laughter and tears as it examines the harrowing absurdity of ordering your own flat-pack cardboard casket. Myra's husband, Alec, unleashes a virtuoso tirade at a central heating call centre because, although he cannot save her, he's determined to let her die warm.

Daughters Harriet & Jenna watch their mother with astonishment, love and grief as she sets about to organise everything: "I get bored, I need something to do!"
Myra's volcanic swings of mood and strange requests are essentially strategies against fear. But if she wants to sit watching TV in a cardboard coffin painted with clouds and stars it really IS her funeral.

Colder Than Here by Laura Wade is an acclaimed West End drama
