The second play by a "writer of terrific promise" (Time Out) is a comedy of family intrigue and secrets Interwoven events from the past and present blend together in this touching comedy spanning two generations of a family. Secrets that refuse to remain buried erupt as Jewish and non-Jewish family members are brought together. After years of separation, the funeral of their father Louis is the catalyst for the family members having to face it out in the bedroom - the place where all the confusion began. And the place where the truth about each of them will finally be discovered. "He's had the decency to rename the funeral parlour... He provides coffee out front and coffins out back. Apparently not enough people are dying anymore but everyone needs cake." Published to tie-in with the world premiere at the Hampstead Theatre, London.
