Dearly Departed

December 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12

Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm

In the backwoods of the Bible Belt, the dysfunctional Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, the Turpins’ other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. Amidst the chaos, they find comfort in friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need, and finally, the funeral.
