Not to be confused with the Joe Orton play, this friendly little physical theatre piece focuses on a young undertaker forced to look after his demanding father. His brother, a wee bovver boy comes on a visit, and various fakings of death, and real deaths ensue. There’s no shortage of playful energy from the two-man cast, and good use is made of two filing cabinets as props. But beyond its amusing callisthenics, the piece hasn’t much to say. (Steve Cramer)

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 27 Aug, 1pm, £7.50–£8.50 (£6–£7).
