Online Theatre | Last Easter

Online Theatre | Last Easter

Synopsis

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. They glug red wine and hope to find a miracle at Lourdes for June, a non-believer 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
