Dublin Main Street Players

Prepare for an evening full of surprises, hilarity, and convoluted confusion when the Dublin Main Street Players present Let Him Sleep ‘Til It’s Time for His Funeral by Peg Kehret on Friday, April 21st and Saturday, April 22nd at 7 PM at Theatre Dublin!


In this convulsively funny comedy for high schools and community theatre, everything goes from bad to awful. John is anxious about turning 50 and having done nothing with his life. His loving wife, Marianne, decides to show him he’s wrong by hosting a surprise funeral instead of a birthday party. Sounds strange, but her intentions are good — she wants him to know how much he’s loved. It’s to be a fantastic surprise party for guests, relatives, the undertaker, and most of all, John.  But there’s a mixup. John catches wind of Marianne’s plans for the funeral and assumes she’s planning to murder him. He purchases a plane ticket to Mexico to escape. When Marianne finds the plane ticket, she thinks John is leaving her! Their teenage daughter and the neighbors all have other even wackier ideas. This delightful mess is amazingly resolved in a hurricane of hilarity.


Tickets are $15 and available for purchase at Morris Bank – Downtown at 301 Bellevue Avenue starting Monday, March 27th.
