Hester is determined to live her last days to the full. Even if it kills her…

Inspired by an original composition by Brigit Forsyth, written by her daughter Zoe Mills - the pair star in this hilarious and irreverent brand new comedy exploring inspiration, music, life and the right to die.

With an ingenious mix of live cello, film and soundscape, Killing Time moves, amuses and provokes fresh thought on the most searching questions we all may face.

If you could leave the world your very last words… What would you say?
