Bob and Bernard don’t have that much in common. But after a chance meeting at their weekly hospice group, they realise they share one ambition – to do some serious living before they die. So, with a bottle of Bollinger and the keys to Bernard’s Bentley in hand, they hit the road, and take on one final, death-defying adventure.

This show was originally commissioned by London International Mime Festival, Dead Good is a funny and poignant theatre show celebrating friendship – and the importance of living every precious day to the full. Bubbling with humour and awash with pathos, this beautifully crafted production is performed entirely without words.
