Sisters, Seagulls and Send-offs

Written and performed by Hayley Lamb and Louise Harris.60 minutes

‘Sisters, Seagulls and Sendoffs’ uses real life experiences of dealing with death, dying and bereavement. The performance includes the notion of taking control, talking openly and making plans regarding end of life choices. It also explores some of the barriers we face as a society and how we deal with these sensitive issues. The protagonists, two sisters, explore the issue of grief, permission to grieve, and battle between coping with grief in different ways.

This performance gives an insight into the role of death within society, and the emotions surrounding this difficult subject.

Suited to:

  • Death, dying and bereavement events
