DEAD AND BURIEDby James McLindon. Director: Laura Ekstrand
1st rehearsal: Monday, September 3. Runs September 27 – October 14 (Friday-Sunday).
In this dark comedy set in a small New England town at Halloween, 18-year-old Perdue finds a job
in a place most people wouldn’t even consider: the local graveyard. Bid, the taciturn former Marine
who runs the cemetery, hires Perdue because she’s moved by her plight. Robbie, Bid’s assistant,
a fatherless boy whose knowledge of manhood has been gleaned from the pages of Maxim ,
launches a doomed campaign to seduce Perdue. By play’s end, the characters’ search for what
they’ve lost—a mother, a father, a child—ends when they find one another instead.
