Impromptu Players Presents:
LET HIM SLEEP 'TIL IT'S TIME FOR THE FUNERAL, By PEG KEHRET. By Special arrangements with PIONEER DRAMA SERVICE
in this funny comedy for high schools and community theatre, everything goes from bad to awful. John is anxious about turning 50 and having done nothing with his life. His loving wife, Marianne, decides to show him he’s wrong by hosting a surprise funeral instead of a birthday party. Sounds strange, but her intentions are good — she wants him to know how much he’s loved. It’s to be a fantastic surprise party for guests, relatives, the undertaker, and most of all, John. But there’s a mix-up. John catches wind of Marianne’s plans for the funeral and assumes she’s planning to murder him. He purchases a plane ticket to Mexico to escape. When Marianne finds the plane ticket, she thinks John is leaving her! Their teenage daughter and the neighbors all have other even wackier ideas. This delightful mess is amazingly resolved in a hurricane of hilarity.
