Nobody talks about death.
One of the only certainties in life is that we're going to die. Why then, do we shy away from talking about it? Why can't we talk about our relationship to death in the same way we talk about our dreams and aspirations?
Through joyful and tender physical work The PappyShow explores if we can find life in death. How do we celebrate the end of our stories?
Written by Aaron Gordon, directed by Kane Husbands and performed by The PappyShow ensemble.
Dialogue Theatre Club
Dialogue Theatre Club is open to anyone who likes watching theatre and chatting about it too. It's like a book group, but for plays and performances: you buy your own ticket to see the show when it suits you, then bring your thoughts to share with other audience-members in an informal conversation hosted by writer Maddy Costa and artist Rhiannon Armstrong. We meet monthly at Paddington Library, which is wheelchair accessible, and refreshments are provided.
For May’s Theatre Club we’ll be talking about Wait Til the End. We’ll meet at Paddington Library, Porchester Road, London W2 5DU, on Monday 1 June at 7.30pm – so please see the show before then! (And yes, we know, the dates look weird, but this is the May club, promise.) For further details, please email [email protected]

ABOUT THE PAPPYSHOW
The PappyShow are a playful physical and visual ensemble theatre company. Formed in January 2013 by Kane Husbands in order to provide a much-needed space for actors to train in physical theatre, we use exercise and training to devise and create work.
We believe that having a space to play, devise and fail improves us as performers, and informs the way we approach our work. The PappyShow are a New Diorama Theatre Associate Ensemble.
