The play tell the story of Myra who, with a prognosis of 6 months, sets about finding the perfect burial site and arranging her funeral. Colder Than Here is a beautiful and poignant play that looks at how a family deals with the inevitability of losing a loved one to cancer while having to address the funny and mundane aspects of living.

As Myra researches burial spots and bio-degradable coffins, her family is finally forced to communicate with her, and each other, as they face up to an unpredictable future.
