The Etiquette of Grief

Thursday 7th December, 7.30pm

Tickets: £9, £7 concessions


Etiquette of Grief is a playful and provocative solo show by performer Ellie Harrison. In a piece which is both heart-wrenching and heart-warming, Ellie explores the wide-ranging emotions that follow an overwhelming loss and the ways in which grief touches us all.

This thought-provoking performance asks: does the British ‘stiff upper lip’ help or inhibit how we deal with our emotions, and is there such a thing as a collective identity that effects how we grieve? Ellie takes audiences through the sometimes uncomfortable, but also funny and peculiar, rituals of mourning, offering coping mechanisms, moral support, a little musical accompaniment and even a large splash of port.


‘Ellie Harrison punctures the pomposities - both personal and collective - associated with grieving. Her
gently ironic delivery keeps you constantly guessing: is this serious or not? It’s both
. ‘ The Guardian
