This show sucks you in from the very first minute. Profound, heart-breaking, and riotously funny. Breath-taking, important piece of work. Go. It’ll make you feel alive.
Fest Mag

There’s no point at which it stops being funny. Some of the most perfect, Tom and Jerryish facial acting you’ll see on the Fringe. Thinking about death has inspired a show packed to brim with life and joy.
The Scotsman

It’s fast, it’s funny and it plumbs the emotional depths exquisitely. Ugly Bucket is making really exciting, innovative work.
