'Life is made up of so many moments, the wonderfully happy times and incredibly sad, these moments are what life is made of, they are our story'
Written and performed by Hayley Riley and Louise Evans
'Sisters, Seagulls and Send offs' is a 60 minute performance, that uses real life experiences of dealing with death, dying and bereavement. The production includes the notion of taking control, talking openly and making plans regarding end of life choices. It also explores some of the barriers we face as a society and how we deal with these sensitive issues.
It's about life, it's about death, it's about options and choices. Beth and Penny have recently lost their father and they have conflicting opinions of his life and his death. The two sisters explore permission to grieve, and battle between coping with grief in different ways. As such, this play gives an insight into the role of death within society, and the emotions surrounding this difficult subject.
