KDC Awards Night and End of Year Celebration

We’re holding the first annual KDC Awards Night on Saturday 23 July, 8pm. We’ll be handing out awards, getting together with casts from the past year, and having a good old time. 

Bored of the same-old standard awards categories? Us too. Rather than best actor, best director etc, we’re opting for awards that recognise some great moments in each show from the past year. We’ll be sharing more details and how to cast your votes in the week of the event.

If you’ve been involved in – or have seen – a KDC show in the last year, come along to cheer on the nominees as we celebrate a fabulous time spent making some great theatre together.

“What would you do if I died?”

In the midst of all the silly questions couples ask themselves,
sometimes a serious one will settle, and take root.
What if we could answer the unanswerable?

A new comedic play exploring the frivolous glory of relationships,
the devastating grief of loss, and the healing power of support.

Devised & written by the cast and director.

Performance 5-9 April, tickets here!
