Good Grief, directed by Natalie Abrahami (Anna, National Theatre, Machinal, Almeida), is a romantic comedy about grief. Sharp, funny, brutal, irreverent and quintessentially British.

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

Giving a standing ovation alone in front of a laptop felt strange even by the standards of this pandemic, but it was entirely deserved. If, for however long, this is live theatre’s future, then it works triumphantly.
- Mark Lawson, The Guardian on A Separate Peace
