The Stage

This is a show about grief. This is a show about loss. Just not how you’d expect.

Dance Like It Never Happened is the funniest, most joyful and uplifting show you will ever see about feeling totally bereaved.

At the end of 2019 we lost another election and our place in Europe. But worst of all for us, we lost a friend we loved more than life.

This followed by the year that was 2020, and our decades-long system of dealing with grief - ignoring it, drinking heavily and making jokes - we finally broke. Totally.

In their most honest & personal show yet, Jonny & The Baptists learn to accept and engage with their grief, telling the story of denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance through their trademark blend of silly, joyful songs, deadpan stand-up and riotous storytelling. Finding meaning, humour and beauty in the hardest part of life.

Hilarious and moving throughout .... Jonny & the Baptists will make you laugh until you cry and probably cry until you laugh, too. A must-see
