★★★★ "This revival of Bryony Lavery’s feelgood death drama…performs its own miracle in its warmth, gusto and celebration of life and friendship” The Guardian

★★★★ "Fused with a great deal of humour... feels as pertinent as ever” Theatre Weekly 

★★★ “(Tinuke Craig) brings out the friendships in the script through physical touch, which feels even more powerful and joyous in our current climate.” A Younger Theatre 

"A funny and engaging exploration of life, death and friendship.” BroadwayWorld 

“...both moving and entertaining and offers uninhibited acting.” British Theatre Guide 

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. They glug red wine and hope to find a miracle at Lourdes for June, a non-believer 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.

“Reckless hilarity and breath-holding profundity… A beautiful portrayal of love and friendship” The Stage

“You start to feel as if you’ve known these people all your life” The Guardian
