How do you grieve for someone you shared a life with, when that life was a lie? When a woman loses her husband in shocking circumstances that simultaneously expose his elaborate double life on the swingers scene, the impact is inconceivable. With the use of a giant drawing-board, in a beautifully rendered, intimate atmosphere, the woman recreates key memories of their lost relationship, grappling with the complex nature of love, identity and betrayal. Inspired by a true story, Waking Up Dead is raw and potent theatre.
