On the Other Side of the Lid

A world premiere by the playwright who brought us Dear Rita and Tompkinsville!

What happens when a funeral home tries to make some extra cash by hosting an Open Mic in its spare room? Absolute mayhem!   

Great Aunt Doonie’s life is being celebrated tonight and her family is furious that the power ballads are drowning out her eulogy. Our Open Mic Host is also the funeral director; dealing with wacky musical folks and mourners’ meltdowns is quickly driving him batty. Things ramp up even further when an amateur medium finally graduates to professional, as spirits from the “other side” suddenly appear amidst the pandemonium. They’re here to get this party started… amongst other unfinished business. 

Open Casket Open Mic is a wild, musical adventure at the place where the living and the dead meet — a funeral home. 

It is at the Victoria Playhouse this summer.
