In this convulsively funny comedy by Peg Kehret, everything goes from bad to awful.  John is anxious about turning 60 and having done nothing with his life. His loving wife, Marianne, decides to show him he is wrong by hosting a surprise funeral instead of a birthday party. Sounds strange, but her intentions are good — she wants him to know how much he’s loved. It’s to be a fantastic surprise party for guests, relatives, the undertaker and, most of all, John.  But there’s a mixup. John catches wind of Marianne’s plans for the funeral and assumes she is planning to murder him. He purchases a plane ticket to Mexico to escape.  When Marianne finds the plane ticket, she thinks John is leaving her. Their teenage daughter and the neighbors all have other even wackier ideas. This delightful mess is amazingly resolved in a hurricane of hilarity.

The show will be directed by Tammy Belanger. John is played by Tom Janowski, with Pam Herriott as Marianne, Sherilyn McIntyre as Marianne’s best friend Jackie, Greg Herriott as Jackie’s husband Russ, Renea Walters as John and Marianne’s daughter Elizabeth, and BJ Irish as Mr. Jansen.
