“A piece that demonstrates why life is worth living… you’ll leave feeling elated” and “possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see” will be performed at the Theatre Royal, Dumfries, on Monday, 5 September.

Produced by Duncan MacMillan, it stars the “phenomenally engaging” Jonny Donahoe as the son who makes a big list of brilliant reasons why his depressed mother should not commit suicide. The production receives outstanding praise wherever it appears and has left a trail of tears of both joy and sorrow across the globe. The performance begins at 7.30pm.
