The International Theatre Studio presents “Wife After Death” a Black Comedy by Eric Chappell at the Atalaya Park Hotel, Discoteca Mayoral on Friday 14th, Saturday 15th November at 8 pm and Sunday 16th November at 7 pm.
‘Wife After Death’ revolves around the funeral and cremation of comedian, Dave Thursby, a ‘national treasure’ loved by the public, and the repercussions of his death on family and friends.
Harvey Barrett has lost his best friend. Dave was hugely successful, a devoted husband to his wife, a model client for his agent and a staunch friend to his faithful gag writer, Harvey. There’s now a huge, aching void in their lives, and, worse still, some of them may be out of a job!
As they gather to give Dave a fitting send-off, it turns out they know rather less about him than they’d imagined and a series of revelations uncover some home truths about the much-loved comedy legend.
The author Eric Chappell has written numerous stage plays and screenplays since the seventies but is probably best known for TV sitcom ‘Rising Damp’.
