EVENT:  The hilariously funny movie Kingdom Come is based on our last play of the season Dearly Departed, both written by David Bottrell and Jessie Jones. Meet the Turpin family a colorful dysfunctional group of Southern eccentrics. Bud Turpin has just dropped dead and they’ve got a funeral to plan, and between the feuds, marital flings, and Macaroni and Ham Loaf Surprise it may escalate into a multiple-coffin memorial service. By the time they sort through the hangovers, money problems, and headstone engraving options, they’ve learned that coping with life’s losses can turn out to be disturbing, disgusting, deceiving, dramatic, and dumb and doggone drop-dead funny.
