Rose Matafeo is Finally Dead, Review

★★
Pleasance Courtyard, The Attic  | £9/8.50 | 17:45
I've been to a few wakes in my life, but none like Rose Matafeo’s. This wasn't a real wake tho, just a practice run! 
 
Rose has been thinking a lot about her funeral recently, so much so that she has planned it in intricate detail. Not just the 90s R&B music, or the dress code but full blown dance routines.
 
When I entered to the downbeat organ music (being played live by Rose’s accomplice) and looked at the coffin on the table, I wasn't sure what to expect. However, the show is energised instantly when she rises from the dead and takes to the stage in her bejewelled jacket whipping the audience up into a party atmosphere.
 
The intimate size of the venue allows Rose easy access to the audience, bouncing off of everyone around her.
