Good Grief - Unity Theatre

Good Grief

Thursday 8th — Saturday 10th July

Unity One
Presented by Ugly Bucket


A dying man’s wish; for Ugly Bucket to create a show about death. Will it be subtle? Will it be profound? Probably not. But it’s his funeral. Literally.

Ugly Bucket process the death of a friend in the only way they know how; through a high energy maelstrom of clowning, slapstick, verbatim, and thumping techno tracks.

Good Grief is a paranormal physical performance of loss and the memories left behind.
