Fern doesn't get invited to dinner parties anymore. They used to love her tales of the macabre. But now?
The mask is slipping. Written by Amy Conway and directed by Beth Morton, Catafalque is a one woman eulogy to death through the lens of a civil celebrant. How do we grieve the ungrievable? How do you speak of death when no-one wants to look? A show about love, loss and a lifetime of secrets. Join Fern as she navigates the complexities of grieving family and learns to tell the truth when it repels the bravest of us.
