Good Grief

Good Grief is part of our PUSH Festival, with many other performances taking place across our building. You can see the full programme here.



A dying man’s last wish: for his friends to create a show about death.

Will it be subtle? Will it be sophisticated? Probably not, but it’s his funeral. Literally.

Multi award-winning physical comedy company Ugly Bucket process the death of a friend in the only way they know how – through a kinetic maelstrom of outrageous clowning, personal testimony and a thumping techno soundtrack.

It’s fast, it’s funny and it plumbs the emotional depths exquisitely... exciting, innovative work

The Stage

A breathtaking, important piece of work. Go. It’ll make you feel alive.

Fest Mag

A unique, innovative show about grief which is not only funny but goes beyond entertainment and is profoundly affecting.

Edinburgh Guide

Some of the most perfect, Tom and Jerryish facial acting you’ll see... Thinking about death has inspired a show packed to brim with life and joy.
