NECROPHILIA is a very dark multiple-fetish comedy set in a funeral parlour. Complete with freshly dead corpses on the table, and each new body eagerly awaiting their formaldehyde bath. With just so many taboos and fetishes to explore, there are humourous cringeworthy one-liners galore. The cast of four, all brought depth to their roles. Especially impressed by the stillness of the actor playing each of the different Dead Bodies.
Of course a very fast paced comedy/drama about the paraphilia called Necrophilia, means the audience should expect there will be one or more Necrophiliacs. Also perhaps some Thanatophilia, Necrophilism, Necrolagnia, Necrocoitus, Necrochlesis. We discover an unexpected fetish in the first ten minutes. The events unfold, including a morality tale about a blackmailing videographer, and the extremely distasteful blackmail victim. Two employees have fetishes, that make them quite unable to find a way to date each other. An eventful evening of interesting live theatre.
