Colder Than Here

Guildhall presents Laura Wade's family drama

Guildhall School presents Colder Than Here

Nobody can ignore the fact that Myra is dying, but in the meantime life goes on. There are boilers to be fixed, cats to be fed and the perfect funeral to be planned.

As a mother researches burial spots and biodegradable coffins, her family are finally forced to communicate with her, and each other, as they face up to an unpredictable future. 

Laura Wade's beautifully-poised family drama was first performed at the Soho Theatre, London, in 2005.

Listen to our podcast with cast members Jonny Lavelle and Phoebe Marshall and Lighting Designer Sally McCulloch as we discuss all things Colder Than Here, from working with director Lisa Blair and the creative team, the joys of working with a small cast and the challenges in finding the humour in a play about cancer.

Promoted by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

Booking from 11 December. Priority booking for Guildhall Circle members.
