The Funeral

By Lawrence Theatre Company (other events)

12 Dates Through May 16, 2020

The funeral takes a realistic look at what happens when a family member passes away.  These topics affect many families, but are not talked about.  With the loss of a loved one comes the struggle of planning a funeral while filled with a host of emotions. Jasper Norman Williams Sr. is gone and now the secrets, lies and conflicts seem to be replacing him. The lies create questions, anger, hurt and shame for some of the members of the Williams family. Will they be able to recover as a family and as individuals? Will the deception break up the family permanently and leave them with scars too deep to come back from?  The funeral will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions.
