The New Vic Theatre is bringing back an audience favorite. Dearly Departed a comedy by David Bottrell and Jessie Jones opens April 10 and plays a short 4 week run. Don't miss it!
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 earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father's funeral, the Turpin's other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion.
Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn 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.
“Not since STEEL MAGNOLIAS has a more colorful and dysfunctional group of Southern eccentrics gathered below the Mason-Dixon line.” —NY Post.
"Dearly Departed is drop dead funny." —NY Daily News.
