Ever thought of stealing someone's ashes? Neither had Millie. Now she's barrelling down the M6 in a Fiat Punto with three accomplices, 45 packets of crisps and a large decorative urn. Four Felons and a Funeral is about four dysfunctional friends on a road trip to scatter their mate's ashes. En route, they go through the five essential stages of grief: screaming, shouting, fighting, f*cking and fleeing from justice. A feel-good show about letting go of people we've lost and learning to lean on the ones we've got. GOYA presents a queer rom-com road-trip musical.

There were definitely a few good songs on here. The characters were charming. I'll probably need a little more development to get into the world of this musical, though. Still much appreciated.

Joly Black 53 days ago

Thoroughly enjoyed this show- funny story with some fantastic musical moments and insights into queerness which I found touching. One of my top recommendations for fringe this year- especially for new musicals!

Verdun Luck 56 days ago

A great show! Every year or so we see a show that makes the whole trip to the fringe worthwhile and this year this is that show.

Music (played live) and singing with great harmonies are all very good as is the good use of minimal props. Beautifully written and directed.

Don't miss this show because I am certain it will sell out very soon

Four Felons and a Funeral is a small show with a big heart, and hopefully we will see more iterations of it in the near future.

Theatre and Tonic (4/5 stars) 51 days ago

Four Felons and a Funeral is a highly enjoyable show about love, loss and moving on - it'll make you laugh and maybe even make you cry in places as it switches in a heartbeat from comedy to heartbreak. The madness of the road trip has a strangely satisfying ending. It's the perfect way to kick off your afternoon at the Fringe.
