Directed by Lisa Black

Frederick Dennehy as Max Marshall

Jeff Forbes as the Funeral Director

Funerals aren’t supposed to be fun. Bitsy has a paralyzing fear of dead bodies, but forces herself to go to the funeral parlor to keep husband Max from having one of his ‘episodes.’ Max is frantically trying to prepare to give a eulogy for a man he barely knew and to keep a straight face as the widow describes in hallucinatory detail her husband’s ‘roof tragedy.’ The funeral director tries to keep order, but things escalate out of control as the widow glares at Bitsy, Bitsy glares at Max and Max glares at the corpse.
