Synopsis:

If you could spend eternity with just one precious memory, what would it be?

Adapted from Hirokazu Koreeda's acclaimed film, After Life takes us into a bureaucratic waiting room between life and death, where a diverse group of newly deceased strangers grapple with an extraordinary choice: selecting their most cherished memory to carry with them for eternity.

Guided by enigmatic officials, these characters embark on a soul-searching journey through their past lives to choose their forever memory. With grace, sensitivity, and humour, exploring themes of love, regret and hopefulness, After Life is a celebration of theatre, and a moving meditation on the way we view our lives, and what it means to live, to die, and the memories we make along the way.

"A compelling vision of eternity" – The Times

"A great idea, charmingly done... its best parts are pure theatre" – The Guardian

"Miraculous... an absolutely superb play... I was incredibly moved by it... a properly transcendent piece of theatre" – TimeOut
