The memory plays

See it 30th Oct - 3rd Nov 2018 at BATS Theatre

One woman relives an argument with an old friend. Another spirals into questions about her strangely vivid dreams. A third can’t get over an ex, much to the chagrin of everyone who knows her.

All three are stuck in the past, and all three need to let go or risk damaging their present lives in the process.

A filmmaker, a med student, and a psychology major come up with a plan to catch the Grim Reaper… but there’s just one problem: they need to kill one of their friends to do it. Well… almost kill them, that is. None of them expect it to work… and they have absolutely no clue what to do now they have Death itself caged in their lounge...

How to Catch A Grim Reaper was originally commissioned by the Young & Hungry Arts Trust and was first presented as part of the 2015 Festival of New Theatre at BATS Theatre in Wellington, New Zealand.

Helen was named Outstanding New Playwright at the 2015 Wellington Theatre Awards for How to Catch a Grim Reaper.
