Meet the Bible Belt kin of Bud Turpin. They’ve got a funeral to plan and — between the feuds, marital flings and Macaroni and Ham Loaf Surprise — it may escalate into a multiple-coffin memorial service. By the time the Turpins sort through the hangovers, money problems and headstone engraving options, they’ve learned that coping with life’s losses can turn out to be drop-dead funny.

The show is directed by Dean Shellenberger, featuring a cast including local favorites Boots Martin, Wade Lucas,and Lisa Derthick, among many other talented actors. Set and lighting design is by Don Myers and costumes are by Eileen Beaver.
