ice&fire confronted the disturbing rise in the number of so-called ‘paupers’ funerals’ in modern-day Britain in this experimental piece that retraced the stories of four individuals buried in the same communal grave.

‘…an engaging piece of theatre, packed full of clever scenarios and pithy dialogue… a cleverly executed, poignant production.’ TIME OUT
