PRODUCTION NOTES

After a sell-out run at London's Barons Court Theatre in 2003, Milo's Wake returns for a two-week run in London with a revised cast before heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!

Milo O'Connor is alarmed. Although his doctor has declared that his chest is clear, Milo is convinced he can see Nostradamus in his X-Ray. This means only one thing - he's got one foot in the grave and the other on the brink.

For Milo, one of the sadnesses of life is that people only say good things about a man after he's died.

Determined that this won't happen to him, he decides to hold his own wake ahead of time, complete with songs, poetry and live music, to give family and friends the opportunity to raise a jar and sing his praises.

But the family and friends have other ideas...

Milo's Wake is a contemporary Australian/Irish comedy set to have audiences singing, dancing and drinking stout in the aisles. A fantastically funny, honest and moving piece craic full of marvellous music, sparkling repartee and moving performances from an outstanding cast!
