OUTSIDE THE BOX: A Live Show About Death is the new “large-hearted” and “life-affirming” one woman show from Liz Rothschild and Full Circle Productions.
Outside the Box asks its audience to embrace mortality and look on the bright side of life, with a weave of untold and surprising stories, a hint of history and some pithy commentary on the funeral industry (from one who knows!).
Liz is a performer, celebrant and award-winning burial ground owner. Her unique and original new show combines mercurial tales and miraculous truths collected over the years from life’s finishing line. Part theatre, part spoken word; an intimate theatrical conversation which is “beautifully performed” and the result is a taboo busting affair that expertly handles the ‘elephant in the room’ with humour and grace.
As Liz travels the country, the show evolves organically to include new stories shared by its audience, widening the experience. The post-show element of Outside the Box has been fabulously popular and successful, validating the cathartic power of the show and its resonance with audiences.
OTB started life at Brighton and Edinburgh festivals in 2016 before touring nationally since 2017. Please visit www.fullcircleproductions.org.uk for show trailer, press, testimonials and much more!
Retired people are like nuclear power stations. They like to live by the sea…
The Children opened in London in November 2016 and subsequently played on Broadway.
Two retired scientists move to an isolated cottage as the world around them crumbles. One day there’s a new arrival, an old friend they haven’t seen for many years. Why has she come?
This rich and beautifully written play provokes questions that will develop in the mind long after the lights have faded.

Jeeves and Wooster meet Fargo in Oscar Wilde’s funny tale of poor put-upon Lord Arthur Savile.
When a chiromantist (reader of palms) predicts Arthur will commit murder, he decides to postpone his wedding until the dastardly deed is done. Aided by Baines, his trusted butler, and an inept anarchist, a comedy of errors ensues, putting Arthur’s relatives and marriage plans in jeopardy. This version, set in 1925, will have you chuckling all the way home.
