Nancy and Alex fell in love when they were teenagers. It is wholehearted, obsessive, knotted-together love. An exploding pig heart leads to a first kiss, shared secrets, comic books and Dido classics. Then it shatters. Ten years later they reunite and are forced to confront their past. Who hurt who, and who is holding on too tightly to that trauma? Post-Mortem digs deeps into its protagonists to reveal the lies we tell ourselves. Fusing physical theatre and gripping new writing, an honest and comic look at young love and old trauma from award-winning playwright Iskandar Sharazuddin.
