MUMBURGER

 Mumburger   

by Sarah Kosar

Tiffany's mum got hit by a Birdseye truck on the M25. There’s family to call and a coffin to order, but first she has to talk to her dad – and for some reason that's the toughest thing on her to-do list.

 

Meanwhile, an oozing paper bag on the doorstep holds a dying wish that will either bring daughter and father together, or drive them further apart.

 

In her visceral new play about family, grief and red meat, Sarah Kosar (Spaghetti Ocean, Royal Court Live Lunch) asks how far we'd go to reconnect with the ones we love most.

SUPERB PERFORMANCES ★★★★

​ A difficult topic is excellently given the surreal treatment

A MATURE, PROVOCATIVE PIECE OF WORK ★★★★

COMPLEX, STIMULATING & THOROUGHLY DELIGHTFUL

Tommo Fowler’s sympathetic production... strikes a good balance between heightened feelings and emotional restraint

ENCAPSULATES ALL THAT THEATRE CAN ASPIRE TO

[The play] opens the gaping wound of loss and invites the audience to stare deep into the chasm of their own consciousnesses

HUMOROUS & HORRIFIC

[The play] is matched by a production from Tommo Fowler that is equally daring
