When Ann thinks of her father, she immediately remembers playing Peter Pan in her hometown theater in Iowa, particularly when he used to bring her flowers after her performance. Her memory is jogged by the fact that she and her four siblings are in their father’s hospital room during his final moments. His death sparks a conversational wake that includes everything from arguments over politics to when each sibling realized that they grew up. A loving look at a family’s view of death, life and the allure of never growing up.


* Non-equity only *


ANN: She/Her. 60 - 70. Doesn’t feel like a grown-up. Sensitive, a worrier in her day-to-day life, afraid to fly. Prone to the intellectual. A liberal, a New York Times reader, a critic of organized religion. Holds a PhD in rhetoric.

JOHN: He/Him. Late 60s. A devoted son, a generous Family Man. Cared for his ailing father for two years. A defender of conservative values, common sense, and pragmatism. A teacher.

JIM: He/Him. Mid 60s. Likes playing the role of the bad boy and hates “political correctness.” Both literary and a former All-American quarterback. A loving grandfather. A surgeon and oncologist.

MICHAEL: He/Him. Early-60s. Sweet, thoughtful, witty, and gentle, he prefers not to be the center of attention. A medical doctor.

WENDY: She/Her. Late 50s. Earnest, lovable, playful, eccentric. Practices a deep spiritual life. Has a vocation helping others. Unafraid of death.

GEORGE: He/Him. 80s. In part 1, a dying man, in part 2, a ghost, in part 3, himself. Sweet and gentle, but rather stoic and withholding of praise. A good father, a country doctor, and not an easy man to please.
