‘Welcome to the Dead Parents Society. Sign up on the sheet at the side and take a name tag. Sit, and talk, and realise that you are not alone: we are all grieving something.’ Dead Parents Society is a play about how we grieve, how we cope with trauma, and how we find community in the wreckage. Set over several weeks in group therapy, four young adults find themselves attempting to come to terms with who, and what, they have lost. Content warnings (may contain spoilers): parent death, grief, mention of suicide, discussion of rape, alcohol abuse.
