Backstage Theatre, 10330 84 Ave NW
Edmonton, Alberta T6E 2G9 Canada

A mortician falls in love with a man as she prepares his corpse for burial. She has three days until the funeral...but three days just isn't enough. A punk rock musical inspired by true events, from the creators of Edgar Allan and The Legend of White Woman Creek.

"As unapologetic a piece of theater as I’ve ever seen. It takes a true story and tells it in an amazingly unique way, without commenting on its admittedly difficult subject matter." - Cincinnati City Beat

"The gleeful crassness of the whole proceeding is hard to resist. The musical staging is endlessly inventive, Katie Hartman’s voice is a remarkable instrument" - Minnesota Playlist

"Hartman's volcanic performance makes this uncomfortable material compelling. Explodes with all the anarchistic passion you could ask for... " - Orlando Weekly

"It's almost too weird for Fringe" - American Underground

This performance is performed in ASL and English and is fully accessible.
