Lost in grief, Al and her mother hardly know where to begin with the rest of their lives.Into this grieving house burst Als three friends from theatre camp, determined to help out as only drama students know howand theyre moving in for the duration. Over the course of that winter, the now five-strong household will do battle with everything Death can throw at themmeddling relatives, merciless bureaucracy, soul-sapping sadness, the endless Tupperware. They will learn (almost) everything about love and will eventually return to the world, altered in different ways by their time in a home by a river.Told with raw passion, candor and wit, White Hot Grief Parade is an ode to the restorative power of family and friendshipand the unbreakable bond, even in death, between father and daughter.
