LARP at a Funeral is a theatre-style larp based on the 2007 film "Death at a Funeral". It was run for the first time at Hydra 2014 in Wellington, New Zealand and was written by Ellen Boucher and Jenni Sands. The game is notable for its incorporation of the Nordic monologue technique into an otherwise-traditional theatre-style game - a combination which allows players to create and signal opportunities for comedy.


The patriarch of the family has died, and now it's time for family and friends to gather and pay their respects, which means all the fun of a family gathering. Old rivalries will surface, revenge will be plotted, lovers will be revealed...all over a nice cup of tea and maybe a small slice of cake. This is England, after all...

Inspired by the film 'Death at a Funeral', this is a lighthearted black comedy about some of the great Facts of Life - death, love, and sandwiches.
