Exploring the human ability to process tragedy, The Shadow Box by Michael Cristopher delves into the intimate moments between families and lovers of the terminally ill patients Joe, Brian and Felicity.
Performed through promenade, their final days play out in three different cottages on the grounds of a hospital where they are being closely monitored.
This scrutiny into human experience asks what it really means to “cope” with inevitable loss.
"They tell you you’re dying, and you say all right. But if I am dying… I must still be alive."
