Outside the Box – A Live Show About Death at the Everyman Studio Theatre

Tuesday 20 – Wednesday 21 February 2018


Returning to the Studio Theatre after sell-out performances in 2017!

Liz is a performer, celebrant and award winning burial ground owner. Her unique insight into the 'business of dying' has created a highly original and beautifully cathartic show, combining mercurial tales and miraculous truths, collected over the years from life’s ‘finishing line’.

Funny, wise and taboo busting; Outside The Box confronts the 'Elephant in the room' with grace and humour, asking its audience to embrace mortality and look on the bright side of life, with a weave of untold and surprising stories, a hint of history and some pithy commentary on the funeral industry (from one who knows!). 

Outside the Box is liz’s first solo show since Breaking The Silence, which was performed over 100 times to audiences around the country. Breaking the Silence was described as a “Masterpiece of it’s genre” and shortlisted for the Amnesty Prize at Edinburgh Festival in 2008. 

“A remarkably refreshing and important show, gently dancing on the line between playful irreverence and necessary solemnity” - Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Festival 2016

“I’d like to see it performed in every Fringe Festival and every village hall in the UK!” -  Zelah Senior, Brighton Fringe 2016

“Incredibly uplifting and often very funny...delivered to the audience with compassion and understanding.” - Swindon Advertise


"It made me laugh. It made me cry, It made me want everyone to see it!" - Matt Holland, Director, Swindon Festival of Literature 

"Informative, uplifting and life-affirming" - Audience member

This production is directed by Jacquie Crago; voice coach for National Theatre productions One Man Two Guv'nors & Warhorse. As well as an actor and director Jacquie has also been Head of Voice at Oxford School of Drama, Voice Co-ordinator for Birmingham School of Acting and a Vocal Coach for the RSC.
