Vigil opened at the Fugard Studio and starred Graham Hopkins and Vanessa Cooke.
A nephew receives a letter from his old and dying aunt. He rushes to her bedside. What transpires is not what he expects. It is not what anyone expects. Vigil is a quirky, dark comedy which is constantly surprising and, by turns, both hilarious and profoundly moving. It is about life and death, family, loneliness, and the often unlikely connections between people. It is wildly irreverent about death without ever being obnoxious or distasteful.
