How To Urn a Living

About the show

For generations, Fowler’s Funerals has undertaken the responsibility of lifting the spirits of grieving people. But lately business has been dying down, forcing Mr. Fowler, his shop girl Lilith, and his mortician Wisteria to think outside the (pine) box or risk going under.

As they scramble to keep their business alive and satisfy their customers' bizarre requests, the lengths they will go to protect their (funeral) home are tested. Rich in antics and wacky characters, this East 15 ensemble of international actors thrills and tickles in this comedy of quick wit and outrageous moral quandaries.
