Performed by Chris Singleton and directed by Tom Malcolm Wright, this powerful show uses powerpoint comedy, autobiographical storytelling, and poetry to open accessible conversations about grief, loss, and mental health.

It finds the lightness and humour in death, loss, and divorce: exploring how they help us become better at empathising, connecting with, and understanding each other; how we can lose everything and still find the strength to rebuild; how growing a beard can be the best decision of your life; and why some hedgehogs are absolute d*******s.
