    "I spoke to a funeral director today. You don't mind recorded music, do you? Of course not. I don't mean this in a cruel way, but practically speaking, you're the only one who won't have to listen to it." Vigil's Kemp has come to attend to his dying aunt. But as the play proceeds, it becomes less and less clear what he is doing there, or whether she will ever actually die. The Globe and Mail called this black comedy "a small masterpiece." Maclean's called it "a devilishly funny play that laughs in death's face." The 2010 production reunites Hyde Park Theatre Artistic Director Ken Webster (Circle Mirror Transformation, The Collection, House) and Lana Dieterich (Our Town, The Grapes of Wrath) in this wickedly funny dark comedy.

      As an avid fan of HPT, I always expect quality and have yet to be disappointed. This play is nothing less than a jewel, with a hilarious (and dark)examination of the human heart. The characters say... Expand
