Estimated run time: 90 minutes

 

Roast follows the friends and family of Sam, a talented young comedian who took his own life, as they fulfill his last request: to hold a roast of him instead of a traditional funeral. As each of the roasters has their turn on stage, they reflect on who Sam was, and what he meant to them. Throughout, the play asks an important question: when a loved one is lost, how does the world change in their absence? Roast by Harry Wood explores the deeply intertwined worlds of comedy and tragedy, humor and grief. World premiere!

 

Age Recommendation: 13+

**Please note, due to the intimate nature of the production, there will be no re-entry if you leave once the performance begins.
