Prior to expiring, a deadbeat ex-hippie sent a memo to his former wives inviting them to his funeral, and two of the women on the rather long list happen to meet at the open-coffin viewing. Neither has many good memories of their former husband, and his current state of near-nudity (save a strategically placed cowboy hat) doesn't exactly help matters. But bad memories or not, it's time for both to find a way to make peace and move on.

Published Reviews

"A wonderfully wry trip to the funeral parlor... Ms. McKee knows that there are better ways to delineate characters than by giving them windy, emotive speeches."

Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times

"Invitation to a Funeral...is written with rare wit."

Richmond Shepard, Performing Arts Insider
