About the play

Julia Macrae has been murdered. This terrible event brings together her family and the staff of Howkins & Son Funeral Services in a darkly comic, yet haunting play about the impact of loss.

Undertaking blurs the lines between comedy and tragedy, reality and memory, and even life and death.

Undertaking was a new play presented by LIP Theatre Company at Dundee University Students’ Association during February 2016. As well as writing the play, Rob co-directed with Pia Bezzina.

“A solid exploration of grief … enriched by flashes of dark humour and tender moments of personal connection.”
