Death in the Family
Death in the Family is a series of five darkly (comedic) whimsical two-hander vignettes about the effects of death, grief, and trauma: whether it's two preteens pondering the ramifications of being born, brothers who wonder if anyone else is as lonely, if and when revenge is justified, what happens to the people left behind after violence, or how older and younger siblings experience parents in different ways, Death in the Family lets us in on the conversations we may never get to have. Content warning: violence, discussions of suicide, sexual violence, abuse, pedophilia.
