Good Grief at theSpace on the Mile is a thought-provoking debut from four Performing Arts graduates from the University of Gloucestershire, known collectively as “Potato Face Productions”.

When Amy was in her final year at university, her life was changed when her much loved dad died of cancer.  Whilst dealing with her own grief, Amy also found that many of those around her treated her differently, with their reactions ranging from trying to avoid eye contact so they wouldn’t have to speak to her, to those who were over-sympathetic.

Good Grief looks at the ways we deal with grief and loss, whether our own or someone else’s, and invites us to examine what we say and how we interact with someone who is grieving.  This may sound like a pretty gloomy subject for a show, but it includes plenty of laughter and wit as well as being very moving at times.

This is a new production, and it could do with a bit of “tweaking” in terms of the visuals that go with it, but Potato Face Productions looks like a company with a great deal of potential and I look forward to seeing more of their work in future years.
