Cliffoney Dramatic Society from Co Sligo presents hilarious 3 act comedy

The story takes place in a small town in County Mayo, in the west of Ireland in the early 1980s. Local man Tom Healy has died and is being waked in his house by the sea. He has left some unusual funeral instructions with the local doctor who passes the details on to the dead man’s family. His last wishes do not sit well at all with his daughter Mary and his estranged son Martin, who has just returned from America for the funeral. Should they bury him properly in a normal grave or give in to his last request?

A short interval will take place between the 2nd and 3rd Acts
