Wife After Death by Eric Chappell

From the Publishers:

Comedian and national treasure Dave Thursby has died, and on the day of his funeral, friends and colleagues gather beside his coffin to pay their last respects …

There’s Harvey, who wrote Dave’s material; Vi, Harvey’s wife; Kevin, Dave’s agent, and Kevin’s wife Jane

Dave’s glamorous widow Laura has arranged a funeral to remember, complete with a horse-drawn hearse and an attendant dog

An unfamiliar woman in flamboyant mourning clothes turns out to be Kay, Dave’s ex-wife from before he was famous, and a series of revelations end with Kevin throwing a drink into the coffin and all the guests asking themselves if they ever knew the “real” Dave

Act II opens three weeks later for the disposal of Dave’s ashes

The atmosphere is tense and Kevin is wearing a controversial tie, but as more truths are revealed, even from beyond the crematorium Dave seems to be having the last laugh

“… a terrific evening of love and laughter” ~ The British Theatre Guide
