A witty, cheeky, and gratifyingly macabre comedy from acclaimed Canadian playwright Morris Panych.

Middle-aged curmudgeon Kemp receives a letter from his rich aunt, who writes him she is "old and dying"... or does it say "yodeling?" It's hard to tell – her handwriting isn't very good. But Kemp quits his job and crosses the country to ready her for death, beginning an outrageous series of missteps and misunderstandings that gives way to a surprising, poignant finish. You are invited to join us for this clever, glittering hit of the Edinburgh Fringe and London's West End. We regret that our resident home, St. Stephen's Theater, requires the use of stairs and is therefore not accessible to patrons using a wheelchair. We are, however, able to accommodate patrons with other special needs. When ordering tickets, please let us know how we can assist you.
