Event description

Description

Liz is a performer, celebrant and award winning burial ground owner. Her unique insights and experiences have created a highly original and beautifully cathartic show, combining mercurial tales and miraculous truths, collected over the years from life’s finishing line.

Funny, wise and taboo busting; Outside The Box confronts the ‘Elephant in the room’ with grace and humour, asking its audience to embrace mortality and look on the bright side of life, with a weave of untold and surprising stories, a hint of history and some pithy commentary on the funeral industry (from one who knows!).

This performance takes place in the evening after the Dying for Life Festival.

Tickets are non-refundable.

Reviews:

I loved this show. I can’t think of anything quite like it. Liz manages to talk about something that affects us all, but we never talk about. She makes it both every day and profound, and moves us to laughter and tears. She also empowers us, not in a wishy washy way, but with real concrete recipes for action. It’s a really useful show. She could be the Matt Berry of death!
Mike Kenny, Olivier Award Winning Playwright

A remarkably refreshing and important show, gently dancing on the line between playful irreverence and necessary solemnity
Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Festival 2016

I’d like to see it performed in every Fringe Festival and every village hall in the UK!
Zelah Senior, Brighton Fringe 2016

Incredibly uplifting and often very funny…delivered to the audience with compassion and understanding.
Swindon Advertiser

Outside the box is a life affirming, empowering and entertaining show, during which Liz Rothschild deals with some difficult topics whilst making us laugh – and pause for thought. The audience (ranging from teens to octogenarians) was held captive as Liz told her stories. There was something for everyone to learn along the way, and we were allowed to think for ourselves. Liz showed us the vast variety of ways in which people deal with death, and by doing so, gave us all permission to be ourselves.
