After Life, directed by Keira Bradley, premiered at the National Theatre in London just two years ago.

It opens in Northwich on Wednesday (November 8) and runs nightly until Saturday (November 10).

Adapted from Hirokazu Kore-eda' award-winning film, the play is described as a “surreal and powerfully human” look at the way we view our lives.

“It poses the question, if you could spend eternity with just one precious memory, what would it be?” reads the Harlequin Players Club website.

“A group of strangers grapple with this impossible question as they find themselves in a bureaucratic waiting room between life and death.

“Encouraged by enigmatic officials, they must sift through their past lives to choose their forever.”

A spokesperson for the venue added: “It is sometime since the theatre featured this genre of play, but our previous similar venture was David Jones' The Last Stop, which proved very popular and we feel sure that this will be similarly attractive.

“Harlequin Players Club is looking forward to welcoming you to this production by this leading and highly regarded playwright at our charming theatre in Queen Street where you can enjoy a drink before the show in our revamped bar.”

The box office and details of the full season can be seen on the theatre website,
