The Belfast Maskers are pleased to announce the cast for the comedy, DEARLY DEPARTED, written by David Bottrell and Jessie Jones. DEARLY DEPARTED takes place in the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt. The beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Not since Steel Magnolias has a more colorful and dysfunctional group of Southern eccentrics gathered below the Mason-Dixon line. When the patriarch of the Turpin family keels over dead in the first scene, the struggle to get him buried involves the whole clan, including the not-so-grieving widow who wants to put “Mean and Surly” on the tombstone. “Dearly Departed is drop dead funny.”-NY Daily News.
Performances are October 4,5,11,12 at 7:00 PM and October 6, 13 at 3:00 PM at The Basil Burwell Community Theater, 17 Court St., Belfast.
