Six years ago Sandy ruined his daughter’s wedding day with a Top Table speech that laid bare the family shortcomings once and for all. Well, the joke’s on him, because now, he’s dead. Read more …

You are cordially invited back to the same venue to witness Sandy’s memorial service, where his life will be remembered, commemorated and eulogised. As those of you who knew Sandy in this life will attest, he was a meticulous planner and, as such, he has left instruction for the ceremony to be conducted as he would have wanted. Be prepared to laugh, cry and sing your hearts out as we send Sandy off to the hereafter. Let’s hope everything goes smoothly this time.

The critical consensus

Jaw-dropping, riotous comedy with a genuinely unexpected surprise.

****(*)Lorna Irvine, The List, 20/04/2018

The audience is never in any danger of brooding too deeply on mortality.

***(*)(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 21/04/2018

There is potential here for a sharp and biting tragicomedy but Rob Drummond’s script takes an abrupt body swerve and veers away into a rather uninspired conclusion.

***(*)(*)Max Scratchmann, The Wee Review, 24/04/2018

The plays more solemn moments strive to have feeling and rise above the madness, which is a welcome addition; however, the delight of the play lies in its sheer camp.

***(*)(*)Erin Roche, Edinburgh Guide, 25/04/2018

This works when it keeps faith in the idea of deeply immersive theatre. But every time it stops playing it straight and lets you think it might not be that, is a moment of loss.
