Details

Soho Theatre and Jack Rooke present Jack Rooke: Good Grief.

Rooke's critically acclaimed debut.

With a coffin full of sympathy snacks, Jack Rooke and his 85-year old Nan Sicely invite you to the happiest town in Britain, where Dad’s dead and the only thing to eat is lasagne.

Celebrating finding happiness after tragedy, Rooke’s critically acclaimed debut blends comedy, storytelling and film to explore how we treat the bereaved and the state of welfare for grieving families.

Another compelling production from Soho Theatre, Good Grief was shortlisted for the Best Show by an Emerging Artist in the Total Theatre Awards 2015.

Jack Rooke is a comedian, writer and regular panellist on BBC Radio 1’s The Surgery. He has presented a BBC Radio 4 comedy adaptation of Good Grief and his own BBC Three documentary about happiness, due to air in early 2017.
