“You ever wonder what their stories are?” asks Jane as she looks around the mortuary. She then lets us in on her secret. “I hear dead people!” Jane’s secret becomes our reality as each corpse ‘wakes’ to tell us their story. Take, for instance, Chester who tries to recapture his youth by trying to play rock and roll with a faulty guitar amplifier. His wife, Ida, thinks his playing is terrible, but he believes he’ll be another member of the Grateful Dead. Then there’s Lydia, who has to wait hand and foot on her whining, demanding Aunt Polly. “Why does everything always happen to me?” Aunt Polly complains. Little does she know she’s in for the biggest surprise of her life! One by one, we hear the corpses’ stories, and one by one, none of them turn out as planned. Calling for an easy skeletal set and a cast of 11, this oddball comedy comes to you from the author of Let’s Hang Him and Read the Will and Caught in the Act and is sure to keep you laughing to the grave!
