LAST EASTER

3 April 2020 – 9 May 2020

by Bryony Lavery


Performances of Last Easter have been cancelled. If you've booked tickets we'll be in contact.

A lighting designer, an actress, a prop maker and a drag singer go on a pilgrimage looking for a miracle.

Even when June, the lighting designer, is diagnosed with a devastating illness, the jokes don’t stop coming as a quartet of theatre friends career across France, glugging red wine, and hoping to find a miracle at Lourdes for June, a nonbeliever who thinks the only good thing about religion is the lighting. 

They’ll soon discover that miracles come in many different forms. Last Easter is a funny, moving and provocative play about the true nature of friendship. 

“Reckless hilarity and breath-holding profundity… A beautiful portrayal of love and friendship” The Stage 

“You start to feel as if you’ve known these people all your life” The Guardian
