Death comes to the Fringe
The Edinburgh Fringe Festival (5-29 August) will be featuring several shows coming under the umbrella of Death on the Fringe.
Some are serious, some are comical – but all are aimed at making the viewer think about what it means to live well and die well.

Highlights include: Lovely Lady Lump – jokes and truths from Lana Schwarcz, an Australian comic who survived breast cancer; My World Has Exploded A Little Bit, a darkly comical guide to bereavement: A Reflection on Life and Death (But Mainly Death), from TV’s Dr Phil and A Dream of Dying, the true tale of an unsolved case to identify a body that washed ashore in a small seaside town in Ireland.
The shows are all part of the ongoing charity-led campaign, Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief, which works to promote more openness about death, dying and bereavement.
