Dearly Departed at The Whole Backstage Theatre

February 11, 2022 - February 20, 2022

Dearly Departed at The Whole Backstage Theatre

Directed by Rich Resler

February 11-20, 2022

In the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, the beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Despite their efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, the Turpins’ other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. As the situation becomes fraught with mishap, Ray-Bud says to his long-suffering wife, “When I die, don’t tell nobody. Just bury me in the backyard and tell everybody I left you.” Amidst the chaos, the Turpins tur for comfort to their friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need, and finally, the funeral.
