Outside the Box: A Live Show About Death

Tuesday 29 October 2019

Join Pilgrims Hospices at Canterbury Festival 2019 for a new large-hearted” and life-affirming” one-woman show from Liz Rothschild and Full Circle Productions.

Outside the Box asks its audience to embrace mortality and look on the bright side of life, with a weave of untold and surprising stories, a hint of history and some pithy commentary on the funeral industry (from one who knows!)

I loved this show! I can’t think of anything quite like it. She makes it both every day and profound, and moves us to laughter and tears.

Mike Kenny, Olivier Award-winning playwright

Liz is a performer, celebrant and award-winning burial ground owner. Her unique and original show combines mercurial tales and miraculous truths collected over the years from life’s finishing line. Part theatre, part spoken word; an intimate theatrical conversation “beautifully performed” and the result is a taboo-busting affair that expertly handles the ‘elephant in the room’ with humour and grace.

As Liz travels the country, the show evolves organically to include new stories shared by its audience, widening the experience. The post-show element of Outside the Box has been fabulously popular and successful, validating the cathartic power of the show and its resonance with audiences.
