It’s the funeral of someone important to him, and Connor wants to practice reading the eulogy. Unfortunately, his sister has other plans. Despite being stuck in the back room of a church, loud and rambunctious Fiadh takes Connor on a blast through the past of the life they shared, from childhood forts to teenage discos. Unfortunately, struggling with anger and grief by turns, Connor is having none of it. A boisterous and poignant dark comedy, ‘And Tomorrow I’ll Dance With You’ explores sibling relationships, the magnitude of grief, and how we keep living after loss.
