After Life

A Headlong and National Theatre Co-Production

Written by Jack Thorne

Adapted from the film by Hirokazu Kore-eda

Concept by Bunny Christie, Jeremy Herrin and Jack Thorne 


If you could spend eternity with just one precious memory, what would it be?

A group of strangers grapple with this impossible question as they find themselves in a bureaucratic waiting room between life and death. Encouraged by enigmatic officials, they must sift through their past lives to choose their forever. 

From Bunny Christie (The Curious Incident of the Dog in The Night-time), Jeremy Herrin (People, Places and Things) and Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) comes a surreal and powerfully human look at the way we view our lives. 

Inspired by Hirokazu Kore-eda's award-winning film, After Life is a new co-production with Headlong.
