An one act version was very successfully performed on stage at The Place Theatre in Bedford in 2013 and has now been extended into a three act play.
Max Nowaz is now the author of several novels and plays after publishing a children's book in 2005.
Further detals available at his website.
The play is directed by Sophie Wilson and the actors Alex Pitcher, Nicola Mae Begley, Lucy Beresford-Knox, Jake Botterell and Frankie Hyde-Peace are all distinguished graduates of The Poor School, Islington, London.
John is having a bad day.
He has been laid out in a coffin in his living room for people to pay their last respects before being cremated, but he wakes up.
In fact John has had several bad days recently.
He remembers a car crash and being in hospital but not a lot more, except for some strange dreams.
His life before that was not that great either but had been comfortable.
He tries to get up and out of the coffin but finds he cannot move his legs so he lies back and lets events unfold, they turn out to be both hilarous and disastrous at the same time.
John struggles to come to terms with his new reality after not just one but two life changing events.
The play, full of black humour, tracks John's life as he tries to get back to normality.
Life will never be the same again.
