Dead Funny by Johnson Terry
iIn spite of my desperation I have been patient in spite of my bewilderment I have been understanding in spite of my feeling of utter abandonment ... I've been hanging on in there. Trying to help you come through this terrible thing./i While Eleanor wants a child her willing partner Richard is too busy running the Dead Funny Society. But in a week when British comedy heroes Frankie Howard and Benny Hill both kick the bucket the society gather for a celebration which promises to be full of hilarity and laughter - well for everybody except the disgruntled Eleanor anyhow. Terry Johnson's hilarious comedy of mortality and marriage was premiered at the Hampstead Theatre in January 1994. This edition was published for the West End revival in October 2016 at the Vaudeville Theatre London.
