This is a story about my best friends.

Ok, no, this is actually mostly a story about me.

December, 1998. Dunedin. High summer in a town where there isn’t a lot to do. This is a comedy about death, revolution, unfulfilled love, and a possum.

My Best Dead Friend is a true story about heart-breaking grief and enduring friendship, featuring a soundtrack ranging from
The Verlaines to the Backstreet Boys, and the words of Tuwhare, Baxter and Bishop. It’s a joyful comedy from a heavy heart.

An “authentic and brilliant” storytelling comedy show, My Best Dead Friend is created by Anya Tate-Manning (Hudson & Halls Live!) and Isobel MacKinnon (Best Director, 2015 NZ Fringe Festival).
