STiFF: auditions for Rockingham play on tonight
Angel's girls in Bridgetown Theatre’s production of STiFF.

SUSPENDERS, death by misadventure and unorthodox embalming techniques feature in STiFF, the latest zany, quick fire comedy, being auditioned by Rockingham Theatre.

The play was written by New Zealand-based, singer, actress and playwright April Phillips.

She said chaos could rein in many of the world’s undertakers if the play STiFF were to come true.

In the play, Angel Delight is an ‘escort’ with attitude. She is the illegitimate daughter of a funeral parlour director and inherits the business when her father dies.

MORE: Kinross man charged with biting female police officer

But, before Angel can sell the business and the land (which is much more valuable) she has to continue to run the business as a funeral parlour for a further five years.

Unfortunately, she knows nothing about the funeral business but a great deal about the escort business.
