Morticians in Love
By Christi Stewart-Brown
Directed by Suzan Kurry
"Every body should love death this much."
A shy mortuary owner and her assistant toil alone among the dead until the arrival of a handsome rival mortician who wants to share more than workspace. And the two corpses make five. “V-day is all but dead … flowers and chocolates, formaldehyde and chloroform…”
The play has no nudity, although the corpses will be scantily clad and there are adult sexual situations.
Praise for the play:
"...a morbid, pervy, and very funny farce...Sure, it's strange, but strangely touching too." - The Washington Post
Christi Stewart-Brown's charmingly morbid comedy is so cheerful and upbeat, you'll hardly believe that you're watching a play about bisexual necrophilia."
"Morticians is a simple enough idea: the tender story of first love between two devout necrophiliacs. Now, the idea itself gets a laugh, but what's a pleasure is that Stewart-Brown follows through and creates characters, dialogue, and stagings that are a real joy to watch" — Matthew Richter, The Stranger (Seattle)
