From acclaimed producers Scissor Kick comes the world premiere of Catafalque, a one-woman eulogy through the lens of a civil celebrant asking, how do we grieve the ungrievable? A show about love, loss and secrets, Catafalque is directly inspired by writer Amy Conway’s own experiences, and directed by Beth Morton, with Olivia Millar-Ross on as associate director.

Catafalque follows Fern, a civil celebrant, who is confronted with the challenge of eulogising someone who has done the unthinkable. How do you speak of death when no one wants to look? A grieving mother asks Fern to eulogise her son, and remember him for the love he brought her, despite his horrific acts in life. This moving and absorbing eulogising play is a fascinating examination of love, grief, and how we process loss and life.
