The Last Laugh

Devised by The Company
Directed by Angela de Castro with Jack Stark
Choreography consultant Barry Grantham

Weep if you must
Parting is hell
But life goes on
So sing as well

– Joyce Grenfell –

A new comedy created by the company with the direction of Brazilian clown, Angela de Castro.

The director of Evan & Sons Afterlife Company welcomes you to our community outreach for raising awareness of our local activities.
Taking care of all your post-life needs.

Meanwhile, the old folks are dancing past their curfew and it looks like only one person has turned up to Fatima’s funeral. But as Evan & Sons would have you know, they’ve got targets to reach and they’re putting the fun back into fun-eral.
