Hilarious show of grave importance
Necrophilia by Lincoln Vickery is a fresh new comedy about taboo, fetish and the limits of empathy. Tracking the lives of three employees at the local mortuary, Necrophilia explores the complexity of romantic entanglements and what it might mean to discover something about your crush you can’t let rest in peace.
This is not a show for the faint of heart. By challenging our ideas of sexuality and the moral value we place on death, Necrophilia is a play that will push audiences outside their comfort zones while giving them plenty to laugh about along the way.
