Before the Kardashians, there were the Mitfords! Decorum disappears quickly when this dysfunctional family comes together on the day of a funeral. Filled with animosity and ever sharpening tongues, Thomas, Pamela, Nancy, Diana, Unity, Jessica and Deborah resemble a complicated mix of beliefs, relationships, and lifestyles and yet they manage to gather with claws and words fully armed. Biting dark humour, and the dramatic complications of fame and infamy, flow through this acidic new comedy from the playwright of “The Seat Next To The King”. By the end of this funeral, the family may need more than one coffin!
