If you could spend eternity with just one precious memory, what would it be?
A group of strangers grapple with this impossible question as they find themselves in a bureaucratic waiting room between life and death. Encouraged by enigmatic officials, they must sift through their past lives to choose their forever.
Written by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) from a concept by Bunny Christie (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), Jeremy Herrin (People, Places and Things) and Jack Thorne comes a surreal and powerfully human look at the way we view our lives.
Adapted from Hirokazu Kore-eda's award-winning film, After Life is a new co-production with Headlong.
Please note: this production contains themes of grief and loss that some people may find upsetting.
