This deliciously hilarious comedy deals with a group of small town southerners, trying to get through a family funeral without causing even more grief.

When the Patriarch of the Turpin family keels over dead in the first scene, the struggle to get him buried involves the whole clan, including the not-so-grieving widow who wants to put “mean and surly” on the tombstone.

Despite the comedic efforts of this family to pull themselves together for the funeral, their other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion.

The oldest son, Ray-Bud, drinks himself silly as the funeral bills mount, Junior, the younger son, is juggling financial ruin, a pack of unruly kids and a wife who suspects him of infidelity in the family car, and their unmarried sister, Delightful, continues to seek consolation by eating junk food.

Amidst the chaos, the Turpin family turns to an eccentric community of misfits for comfort, and they just manage to pull everyone together through their hours of need.

Tickets are $12.00 for adults, $10.00 for seniors 55+ and $10.00 for students.
