BE PREPARED

By Ian Bonar

 

 

Tom’s a mess. Mr Chambers keeps phoning asking for a Funeral Director. Tom is not a Funeral Director.  This is how getting one digit wrong can change a person’s life, forever.

Conversations become confused. Memories start to intertwine and unravel, and two strangers unwittingly help each other to un-forget and connect to the people they loved, in this ‘gloriously funny’, ‘wonderfully human’ and ‘magnetic’ solo show.
