“... genre-transcending comedy theatre masterpiece” - Metro Magazine
After an extended and sold-out season as part of the 2015 New Zealand International Comedy Festival, Rose Matafeo is once again FINALLY DEAD from 9-13 June.
From TV3's Jono and Ben and 7 Days to winning the Billy T Award 2013, Rose is well on the road to becoming a national treasure - if she doesn't kick the bucket first. She has been seriously contemplating the inescapable reality of death lately, which is why Rose has decided to stage her own funeral, and she would like you to come partake in the misery.
"Finally Dead is a master class in all things funny." - TV3
With heartfelt speeches, heart-warming musical accompaniment from Paul Williams and heartstring twanging flashbacks – you'll laugh, you'll cry and hopefully you'll dance. With a coffin on hand, Rose is putting the fun back into funeral once again this June.
