A young man called Milo arrives in Scotland with an urn and a promise – to eulogize the recent death of his childhood best friend. The task proves more difficult than Milo anticipates, and he seeks assistance from the attendees to complete the memorial. A EULOGY FOR ROMAN is a dark-comedy, solo-show premiere with audience interaction.
