The Nerja Players
Two short comic plays
If I Can’t Take It With Me, I Won’t Go!
Funeral Tea
March 5, 2019 @ 7:00 PM
The Nerja Players present two one-act plays with a common theme. Both share the black humour frequently surrounding the otherwise solemn event of a funeral. One set in rural Ireland, the other in Yorkshire, they feature typical and entertaining characters to meet our expectations, providing a hilarious scenario of confusion, misunderstandings and an unexpected twist in the tail. A light-hearted and fun evening! Reserve your tickets or contact online at https://www.thenerjaplayers.com/events/two-one-act-plays
Coming up: March 19th. The Two Bees (Burch & Brentley) Take on Brexit!
