Dearly Departed 

April 21 – May 14, 2017
The Circuit Playhouse

By David Bottrell and Jessie Jones

In the backwoods of the Bible Belt, the Turpin family has just suffered the loss of their father, but their problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. First-born Ray-Bud drinks himself silly; Junior, the youngest son, is dealing with financial ruin, monster no-neck kids, and a wife who suspects him of infidelity (in the family car); last, but certainly not least, their spinster sister, Delightful, copes with death as she does life, by devouring mountains of junk food. Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn to their friends and eccentric community of misfits who pull together to help them through their hours of need. Dearly Departed proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious.
