Urning It

COMEDY. Winner of the Jewel Box Theatre “Best Play of the Year” Award. Ward Hammacher has just discovered that his extremely rich aunt has died. To honor her last request, he packs up his family and treks 3,000 miles to scatter her ashes off the Santa Monica Pier and collect his inheritance. The drive proves perilous as the family experiences hilarious misadventures along the way—they get stopped in Texas, ripped off in Arizona, and jailed in Mexico. This family-friendly comedy features a minimal set and plenty of quick-fire wit. (Check out the 50-minute version "Urning It: The Shortcut" under One-Acts!)
