A Guide to Mourning
A father's death reunites Deirdre (Brenda Matthews) with her three adult children. The eldest, Rex (Daniel Martin), is homeless. Lewis (Frano Marsic) is the fussy middle child with an unhealthy attachment to expensive running shoes and their sister, Sandra (Kelly Sheridan), shuns emotion for designer dresses.  Together they attempt to plan their father's final passage with what one would hope to be a sense of tender urgency and intimacy.  But in a play that is at once unsettling and hysterical, both bleak and hopeful, the family is so consumed with serving their own needs first that the actual funeral seems doomed from the start.

Two vibrant, young Vancouver companies (Upintheair and Genus Theatre) are proud to announce their first collaboration, staging the Vancouver Premiere of acclaimed Canadian playwright Eugene Stickland's award-winning play A Guide to Mourning.
