A comedy about death, revolution, unfulfilled love and a possum. December, 1998. Dunedin.
High summer in a town where there isn’t a lot to do. This is a story about my best friends. Ok, no, this is actually mostly a story about me.
My Best Dead Friend is a true story about heart-breaking grief and enduring friendship, written by Anya Tate-Manning (Hudson & Halls Live!) and directed by Isobel MacKinnon (Best Director, 2015 NZ Fringe Festival).
Featuring a soundtrack that ranges from The Verlaines to the Backstreet Boys, and the words of Tuwhare, Baxter and Bishop, My Best Dead Friend is a joyful comedy from a heavy heart.
