In lieu of flowers

A comedy by Jean-Pierre Martinez

Translation by the author

This version has been written for one man and four women but all roles can be played by men or women. Other possible castings for this play include: 5M, 4M/1W, 3M/2W, 2M/3W, 1M/4W, 5W

Stanley’s cremation is scheduled for precisely 3:35 PM. Only a few close relatives are attending the ceremony, as the dear departed has left behind not only good memories. But, as they say, an author continues to live on through their works. And what if these funerals turned out to be his greatest comedy?
