Don't miss out on £15 tickets with previews from 3 April.

A lighting designer, an actress, a prop maker and a drag singer go on a pilgrimage looking for a miracle.

Even when June, the lighting designer, is diagnosed with a devastating illness, the jokes don’t stop coming as a quartet of theatre friends career across France, glugging red wine, and hoping to find a miracle at Lourdes for June, a nonbeliever who thinks the only good thing about religion is the lighting.

They’ll soon discover that miracles come in many different forms. Last Easter is a funny, moving and provocative play about the true nature of friendship.
