About the Show Less...

A comedy about the rich subject of celebrity egos. Read More >

Dave Thursby was a hugely successful comedian, a national treasure loved by the public, a devoted husband to his fragrant wife, a model client for his agent and a staunch friend to his faithful gag writer, Harvey. But when Dave unexpectedly pops his clogs, these close companions are left bereft. There is now a huge, aching void in their lives, and, worse still, some of them may be out of a job. Unless, of course, the repeats, television specials, biographies and newspaper tell-alls can fill the vacuum.

Wife After Death is a new comedy from the pen of Eric Chappell, known for writing TV successes Rising Damp, Only When I Laugh and Duty Free.

Wife After Death stars much-loved actor Tom Conti.
