Reading: Morticians in Love

By Christi Stewart-Brown

Directed by Suzan Kurry

Krass is considering a production of "Morticians in Love" by Christi Stewart-Brown, directed by Suzan Kurry. As has become our habit, before we decide whether to produce a play, we hold an informal reading (open to the public).

About the play:
"In the midst of death, there is life and love-sacred, profane, unrequited and almost always dysfunctional-in Christi Stewart-Brown's very black, five-character comedy (counting two corpses). Scarcely fare for the squeamish, with its excursions into heterosexual and homosexual couplings among the living and dead, the play nonetheless comes off as a caustic, funny, sharp-eyed and skillfully performed autopsy on the difficulties of love...Morticians in Love may be morbid, but it has a heart." -The New York Times "...a morbid, pervy, and very funny farce...Sure, it's strange, but strangely touching too." - The Washington Post

Produced by Kathie Rasmussen Women's Theatre at TBA, TBA

Performances: Monday, November 3, 2014, 7pm.

Performance Times: One-time reading to decide whether to produce the show. Venue will be announced soon.
