“Eight elderly residents of the county nursing home for the indigent discuss the drafting of their obituaries. Should the notices of their approaching deaths contain the same useless platitudes as are so often found in the newspapers? Perhaps these senior citizens might distinguish themselves by drafting their own individual obituaries with a focus upon a particular achievement or life-altering Epiphany never before divulged. The audience becomes privy to some of these unique moments, after which the elderly residents share a reading of their final words on earth.”

Needed are six women and seven men in their 30’s to 50’s
some actors will be playing 80-90 year old residents of a senior citizen center
who appear as their “younger-selves” throughout the play

Auditions will consist of cold-readings from the script
