From the Author of The Tony Award-Winning Art, a Moving Play About Family and Memory
Simon Weinberg is dead. And, on a November morning, he is buried in accordance with his wishes on the Loiret family estate. Gathered together at his funeral are six people--brothers and sisters, lovers, husbands and wives. Mourning allows them special privilege and, for a few hours, they are isolated in another world under a lingering sun, in the shadow of the deceased. Conversations After a Burial explores that ineffable moment of mourning, wherein the newly deceased is still almost palpable, the moment in which one can still maintain the memory of a breath, the intense moment between the absence and the return to every day existence, between loss and life
