Four Funerals in One Day changes its name... or does it?

Due to the extraordinary events in Victoria over the past weeks, some sensitivities were expressed about the name of the play. In order to extend the reach of the play by not offending those who may feel sensitive toward the original title, an alternative title has been developed. “Four Footprints… (the importance of stories in palliative care)”. The stories contained within the play have not changed, nor has the intent for it to be a source of discussion for communities about the lived experiences of palliative care, death, grief and loss. So it is up to individual communities which title they choose to use, both are equally appropriate to the content and intent of the play. An open letter from Alan Hopgood is attached for those interested in exploring the alternative title.
