Stiff out of sorrows, just laughs

The play by April Phillips tells the storya prostitute who inherits a funeral home and must maintain the business for five years before she can sell it.

Rather than provide funeral services, Angel and her friends decide to use it as a front for a brothel.

All goes well, until one of dominatrix Roxanne’s customers disobeys her instructions and is toasted.

So Angel and her girls Sherry, Roxanne and transvestite Delilah try do-it-yourself embalming for the client, Judge Beatson – and of course, much wickedly good black comedy and double entendre follows.

Director Phil Cameron, her cleaver cast and multitude of backstage helpers provided a great night out, full of characters, colour, absurdities and side-splitting humour.
