About Roast

"Roast" follows the friends and family of Sam, a talented young comedian who took his own life, as they fulfill his last request: to hold a roast of him instead of a traditional funeral. As each of the roasters has their turn on stage, they reflect on who Sam was, and what he meant to them. Throughout, the play asks an important question: when a loved one is lost, how does the world change in their absence? "Roast" by Harry Wood explores the deeply intertwined worlds of comedy and tragedy, humor and grief. World premiere!
