Resting In Pieces

A Comedy

By Sam Bobrick

Two Acts

One Set — A funeral chapel

16 Characters — 11 men, 5 women

The play is a memorial service for a very despicable human being. It is a bawdy, lewd, outrageous piece that does not shed a good light on anyone, man or myth. It is definitely not for a family audience or anyone holding on to the fabled notion that in this world we live in there is still such a thing as common decency. You may be shocked, you may be angered, you may be shocked again. On the other hand, it is funny.
