After Life

Audio described in-house

If you could spend eternity with just one precious memory, what would it be?

A group of strangers grapple with this impossible question as they find themselves in a bureaucratic waiting room between life and death. Encouraged by enigmatic officials, they must sift through their past lives to choose their forever.

This new co-production with Headlong is a surreal and powerfully human look at the way we view our lives. Adapted from Hirokazu Kore-eda’s award-winning film.

This production contains themes of grief and loss that some people may find upsetting.
