Eric Pfeffinger's FOURTEEN FUNERALS Comes To Catskill in June

Strange things can happen when you go home again to a place you never really knew. Audiences will discover that for themselves when Eric Pfeffinger's surprisingly side-splitting "Fourteen Funerals" hits Catskill's Bridge Street Theatre for eight performances only, June 2-12.

After a mysterious phone call draws bi-racial Chicago girl Sienna to rural Blissfield, Indiana, the small town her now-deceased parents fled while she was still a toddler, she's shocked to discover that a freak fireworks accident has carried off every single member of the estranged extended family she's never really known. Even more shocking is that, as the very last of the Fitchwoods, she's expected to deliver separate eulogies for every single one of them. But most shocking of all might be the totally unexpected friendship that she stumbles into with Millie, the strangely perky receptionist at Blissfield's Martin Mortuary.

Eric Pfeffinger is a playwright in Ohio who grew up in Indiana and likes to work in Chicago. He enjoys a robust Midwestern humility. His work has been produced by Actors Theater of Louisville's Humana Festival of New American Plays, the Denver Theatre Center, the Geva Theater Center, The Phoenix Theatre, and the Bloomington Playwrights Project. His plays include "Accidental Rapture", "Hunting High", "Some Other Kind of Person", "Barrenness", "Assholes and Aureoles", "Malignance", and the plays for young audiences "Lost and Foundling" and "The Day John Henry Came to School". "Fourteen Funerals" received its world premiere this past February at Butterfly Effect Theatre Company in Boulder, CO.

The play's East Coast premiere (its second production ever) will be directed by Sara Lampert Hoover (BST's "Frankie & Johnny in the Clair de Lune", "Better", and "Lewiston") with sets and lighting by John Sowle and costumes by Alexis Costa. Featured in the cast are Montana Lampert Hoover and Haley Wong. Production Stage Manager is Sarah Foster.
