A funeral parlor in a small Midwestern town is the setting for these three darkly funny and touching short plays. In Tell Tale, we enter the private thoughts of a respectable mortician, lost in passion for a beautiful real estate broker who markets to the bereaved. In Thief of Tears, we meet Mac, the spirited black-sheep daughter of an upper-class family who makes her living stealing jewelry from corpses, returning home for her biggest score. And in Thirteen Things about Ed Carpolotti, a newly widowed suburban matron finds her world crashing about her only to be rescued by the love of her "wheeler dealer" husband from beyond the grave.
