Death at the Funeral meets The Muppets
“A hilariously and heart-piercingly charming hour of theatre”Theatrepress
Death at the Funeral meets The Muppets in this uniquely intimate spectacle which is as impressive as it is tender…with songs and vomiting puppets to boot!
Three acts, ten puppets, one corpse.
An unforgettable farce and a love letter to lives well-lived.
