Laura Wade’s Breathing Corpses is a darkly funny drama about the loss and pursuit of happiness.

Amy’s found another body in her short career as a cleaner for a local hotel, only this time she proceeds to have a heart-to-heart with the dear departed old chap.

Jim, proprietor of the Green Door Self-Storage Company, notices a funny smell coming from one of their storage units, but can he be bothered to investigate?

And Kate’s losing it after spending an entire day with the police. She’s got a business to run and it’s much too hot and her boyfriend’s bloody dog just won’t…shut…up!

Weaving through three separate plot lines, twisting and turning itself in unexpected directions, the play invites the audience to make their own connections between the scenes. But one thing is very clear: Once you’ve lifted the lid and looked inside the box, what you’ve seen stays with you. You can’t unsee what you have witnessed…
