After the tragic loss of a woman they loved, two friends navigate the five stages of grief and all the absurdity, hilarity and pain that that entails.

This new production, which takes the best of theatre and television production, aims to create an unmissable theatrical event for 2021.

At a time when the theatre world is faltering, with theatres closed and jobs cut, this online filmed production sees the convergence of a new theatre and screen team to create a theatrical format which will stream online and be downloadable worldwide, giving employment to the industry.

Good Grief was rehearsed on Zoom, then filmed in a studio adhering to all Covid protocols.

Gala Gordon and Isabella Macpherson, of Platform Presents will co-produce with Amy Gardner of Finite Films.

Also part of this predominantly female strong team are Isobel Waller-Bridge, re-partnering with Sian Clifford having worked with Sian on Fleabag, who is developing the sound design and score. Alongside her is Fin Oates as Editor, (I Hate Suzie...), award-winning Emma Dalesman as Director of Photography, and Natalie Pryce as Production Designer (winner, Production Designer, Black Theatre Awards 2020).

Good Grief follows the success of Platform Presents’ world first, online, live, theatrical production of Tom Stoppard’s A Perfect Peace starring David Morrissey, Jenna Coleman, Denise Gough, Ed Stoppard and Maggie Service, which garnered a clutch of 5-star reviews in in May 2020. It will be the first in a season of productions.

What the critics say

Good Grief...sets out to combine the immediacy of the stage with the intimacy afforded by film. Forty-five minutes slip by with an easy naturalism that would be hard to match on stage.
- Susannah Clapp, The Observer
What counts is the ambience – the halfway state aligning both with the characters’ condition and the Covid context. We’re all sitting on grief at the moment. This succinct effort allows that a brief bubbling forth.
- Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph
A play/film hybrid explores the lurching complexity of loss with style... Good Grief is a bittersweet study of bereavement... The script expertly packs an eight-month arc of bereavement into less than 50 minutes.
- Nick Curtis, Evening Standard
