Final Farewell on tour

Acclaimed audio promenade performance returns to theatres, festivals and community spaces this summer

Tara Theatre will bring back the critically acclaimed Final Farewell – which will tour to a range of festivals and spaces (theatre and community) across England over the Spring and Summer including Greenwich and Docklands International Festival, Hat Fair, Certain Blacks and Brighton Festival.

Final Farewell is conceived and directed by Abdul Shayek and written by Sudha Bhuchar.

14 – 15 May: Brighton Festival
2 July: Hat Fair
23 July: Certain Blacks
10 – 11 September: Greenwich+Docklands International Festival
23 – 24 September: Blueprint Festival, Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch

Final Farewell is a moving theatrical experience that captures the voices of seven individuals and a little black pug in four poignant audio stories. Each of these stories have been carefully crafted by writer Sudha Bhuchar, who has spoken and listened in-depth to real people’s memories and accounts of their loved ones who were lost during Covid-19.

As you wander with friends and other community members, you’ll hear the imagined voices and stories of Shahin, Baby Han, Ann and Oberon in a truly immersive and unique experience. At the conclusion of the experience, we will gather at the tree installation where you will be able to take some time to reflect on your own memories of loved ones and commemorate their lives.

Content warning: contains themes of loss and grief.
