Let Him Sleep ’Til It’s Time for His Funeral

Age Level: High School to College/Professional
Cast: 3F, 3M
Time: 90 minutes, 2 acts

In this convulsively funny comedy, everything goes from bad to awful. It starts when a loving wife decides to give her depressed husband, Harold, a funeral for his 50th birthday. It’s to be a fantastic surprise party for guests, relatives, the undertaker, and most of all, Harold. But there’s a mixup. Harold thinks he’s to be murdered by his wife and she thinks Harold is leaving her. Their daughter and the neighbors all have other ideas. This delightful mess is amazingly resolved in a second-act hurricane of hilarity. A Broadway-style show without Broadway-type royalty fees. A money-maker for any theatre group.
