Eleanor wants a child. Richard would oblige if he could, but he's too busy running the Dead Funny Society.

When British comedy heroes Frankie Howerd and Benny Hill turn up their toes in the same week the society gather for a celebration of hilarity and laughter. But Eleanor's grin masks a grimace.

When your marriage is deader than either Morecambe or Wise it's hard to see the funny side of things.

Terry Johnson's "Painfully funny and funnily painful" (The Times) comedy, Dead Funny, plays for a strictly limited season with Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd, In The Club, Humans), Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen, Benidorm, Whitechapel), Ralf Little (The Royle Family, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, The Cafe), Emily Berrington (The Inbetweeners 2, Humans, 24) and Rufus Jones (W1A, Hunderby, The Casual Vacancy).
