"Butterside Down is a romantic comedy - about grief. Four Weddings 'With' A Funeral it’s sharp, funny, brutal and irreverent."
In the aftermath of Liv’s untimely death, her boyfriend, Adam, her best friend Cat and her sister Sally, negotiate everything from a raucous wake, to releasing her worldly goods to the Jewish Women’s League.
Running the gauntlet of the five stages of grief, the thirtysomething trio compete for who ranks highest on The Grief Meter, reveal hidden unspeakable truths and fail to agree on epitaphs and the allocation of earrings. Ending up in cupboards, on trains and in the emptiest Indian restaurant in England, Butterside Down explores how the young are ill equipped to lose each other. And whether, when you’ve lost the love of your life, your sense of humor can keep you alive.
