A Guide To Mourning

A Guide To Mourning is an invitation to celebrate.

Edmonton Journal

Puttin’ the fun back in funerals…

With hits like some Assembly Required and Sitting on Paradise, Eugene Stickland is fast becoming Canada’s favourite comic playwright. His unique take on situations we face has delighted audiences from New York to Calgary, and A Guide to Mourning is no exception. Wally Pringle is dead and when his emotionally vexed family gathers to mourn we’re given an entertaining look at their outlandish and touching attempt to give a decent funeral. This wicked comedy embraces and celebrates life while taking us through one of its most difficult transitions.
