Outside The Box – A Live Show About Death

  • November 15, 2018
    7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Written and performed by Liz Rothschild & directed by Jo Bousfield. Liz is a performer, celebrant and award winning burial ground owner. Her unique insights and experiences have created a highly original and beautifully cathartic show, combining mercurial tales and miraculous truths, collected over the years from life’s finishing line.

Funny, wise and taboo busting; Outside The Box confronts the ‘Elephant in the room’ with grace and humour, asking its audience to embrace mortality and look on the bright side of life, with a weave of untold and surprising stories, a hint of history and some pithy commentary on the funeral industry (from one who knows!).

Outside the Box is Liz’s first solo show since Breaking The Silence, which was performed over 100 times to audiences around the country. Breaking the Silence was described as a “Masterpiece of it’s genre” and shortlisted for the Amnesty Prize at Edinburgh Festival in 2008.
