Minnie & Mona Play Dead

An independent theatre company struggle to stage the final work an award-winning playwright penned before his unexpected death. Can his final play be staged tactfully and tastefully? Is dousing an actor in petrol too much?
The play within a play, Minnie and Mona Play Dead, tells the story of two friends: one wants to make believe they're cheeky unicorns, and the other wants to die. Like... really die.
Through a sly combination of autobiography, slapstick and satire, Minnie and Mona Play Dead delves into the rough ground unearthed when everyone around you wants to leave. Forever.
Minnie & Mona Play Dead was previously performed as part of The Blue Room Theatre’s Summer Nights 2013 and the Edinburgh Fringe 2013.
