A Beginner's Guide to Widowhood - Part of Departure Lounge Festival 2022

15th July 2022 £7.50

Suria has lost her husband. (She hasn’t misplaced him or anything - he's dead.)

Join her & the kids in Turkey, on what will become "the worst holiday ever." A trip fraught with new challenges: navigating bad advice, sympathetic head tilts... and the 'W' word. 

But the turbulent dynamics of a newly fractured family aren't the kind of baggage you can just stow away neatly in an overhead compartment...

A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO WIDOWHOOD is a one-woman WIP show exploring the experiences of young, widowed women, loss, and why we don't talk about death.
