About Final Farewell
Final Farewell is a moving theatrical experience that captures the voices of seven individuals and a little black pug in six poignant audio stories. Each of these stories have been carefully crafted by writer Sudha Bhuchar, who has spoken and listened in depth to real people’s memories and accounts of their loved ones who were lost during Covid-19.
Final Farewell is an audio walk experience and contemplative, collaborative, celebratory and unique work, based on local people’s experiences of loss during the pandemic. The outdoor experience is self-led (using a map and audio) and is approximately 90 minutes long and includes a number of stops where you will be able to sit down and listen to the audio without walking.
