Dearly Departed

By Jessie Jones and David Bottrell

You asked for it! You demanded it! We are delivering! We’re back! The Turpin family is returning to the Dulany stage in Dearly Departed! The Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious as family pull themselves together for their father’s funeral. Family problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion: Ray-Bud is too cheap and drinks too much. Junior juggles financial ruin, monster kids, and a wife who suspects him of infidelity. Delightful, copes by devouring junk food; and all the neighbors add their two cents. Amidst all the chaos, the Turpins and their misfit friends manage to pull together and help each other at the funeral.

The Drowning Girls

By Beth Graham, Charlie Tomlinson, and Daniela Vlaskalic

Three women rise from watery graves to prosecute their murderer in this morbidly funny play. Based on the true story of one of England’s most notorious serial murderers, the audience becomes judge and jury in the trial, as violence against women then echoes to now. Shocking and delightful, it will take your breath away.

Eurydice

By Sarah Ruhl

On the day of her wedding, Eurydice falls victim to a tragic accident that sends her hurtling into a wonderland of an Underworld: ripped from her beloved Orpheus, the greatest musician in the world, Eurydice is reunited with her dead father in the Land of the Dead. Orpheus journeys to retrieve his bride, but Eurydice has begun to discover that the cost of living again can sometimes exceed the cost of staying dead. Full of dark humor, lyrical beauty, and wit, Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice transforms a traditional myth into a visceral, contemporary meditation on love worth grieving for.
