Ockerby by Debbie Oates
What if the end didn't mean the end? What if you could be frozen moments after death and then be brought back to life, years down the line?
Dr Taylor Devine, can offer one couple this opportunity. Dennis and Viv Ockerby, an unassuming northern couple, contemplate scientific and ethical questions, as Dennis is approaching the end of his life.
This play brings this couple into the rapidly advancing and contentious field of cryogenics, whilst commenting on social shifts in how we perceive and understand science. Ockerby is simply a love story, dealing with relationships, the passing of time and the very human challenge of facing an inevitable end.
