The Funeralogues

Set in a churchy C space, this piece by US actress and playwright Stacy Mayer is a mild-mannered wander through the mind of an obsessive. ‘Stacy’ is captivated by all aspects of the funeral business and will do anything to gatecrash a wake. Gently comic with genuine poignancy, the piece, like life, gets cut short just before she goes for the jugular.
