My short play, “Though They May be Parted,” will be featured in Summer Shorts, Friday and Saturday, June 19 and 20 at 8PM, at Broadway West Theatre, 4000-B Bay Street, Fremont.
“Though They May Be Parted” is a dark comedy about three grown siblings who clash at a funeral home during a viewing of their deceased mother’s body. It’s based in part on two funeral home stories from my own life. in the first case, my mother’s bra was stuffed something fierce for her burial by some out-of-control funeral director. In the second instance, my stepdaughter became distraught when she realized her mother’s lipstick was the wrong color – and would be for all eternity if she didn’t take action.
Yes, the title is from the Beatles song, “Let it Be.”
