The Funeralogues  | Open: 01/16/09 Close: 03/15/09
THE FUNERALOGUES is a darkly comedic look at the inside of funeral homes, funeral rituals and one woman's personal obsession with death. The evening uses actual text from real life eulogies including a tribute to soldiers lost in Afghanistan as remembered by a member of The Casualty Assistance Calling Operations, a eulogy for the performers' own grandfather, a fireman's eulogy read by a Minnesota school teacher, a eulogy delivered by Martin Luther King, Jr. for three child victims of a Birmingham church bombing, and even a humorous eulogy that a six year old imparts for her headless Barbie. Find out the not so certain answer to the uneasy question we all ask: "What they will say at my funeral?"
