Stephen Adly Guirgis

Published by Dramatists Play Service

8 Male 4 Female

The Ortiz Funeral Room is in big trouble - the body of beloved community activist and nun Sister Rose has been stolen from the viewing room, and waiting for her proper return are some of New York City's most emotionally charged, life-challenged neighborhood denizens, trying to find a place to put their grief, checkered pasts and their uncertain futures

Among the equally hilarious and tragic twelve characters, you'll meet Rooftop, a chronically unfaithful but otherwise popular Los Angeles DJ, looking to reconcile with the love of his life; Pinky and Edwin, two brothers tragically linked forever; and the outrageously angry Norca, who doesn't let the fact that she slept with her best friend's husband deter her from the full expectation of being immediately forgiven of her sin by her best friend, Inez, still in pain fifteen years later

The rest of the crowd in this dark, insightful and very funny comedy inevitably square off on each other, motivated by rage, pain and a scary desire to come clean-perhaps for the first time

"A scorching and dark new comedy Mr Guirgis has one of the finest imaginations for dialogue to come along in years" ~ NY Times

"Stephen Guirgis may be the best playwright in America under forty" ~ NY Magazine
