Wife After Death

Wife After Death
Eric Chappell


Our next production will be 'Wife After Death' on Thursday 7th March - Saturday 9th March 2019, a comedy by well-known writer Eric Chappell (Rising Damp fame), to be directed by Vicky Tearle.

Comedian and national treasure Dave Thursby has died, and on the day of his funeral, friends and colleagues gather beside his coffin to pay their last respects. There’s Harvey, who wrote Dave’s material; Vi, Harvey’s wife; Kevin, Dave’s agent, and Kevin’s wife Jane. Dave’s glamorous widow Laura has arranged a funeral to remember, complete with a horse-drawn hearse and an attendant dog. An unfamiliar woman in flamboyant mourning clothes turns out to be Kay, Dave’s ex-wife from before he was famous, and a series of revelations end with Kevin throwing a drink into the coffin and all the guests asking themselves if they ever knew the “real” Dave.
