A SECRET life will soon be exposed at a funeral and the bombshell will cause tempers – and ashes – to fly.

It’s all part of Serial Productions’ latest show Wife After Death, written by Eric Chappell and directed by Rob Warner at the Old Mill Theatre.

Set at the funeral of successful television comedian Dave Thursby, his friends and family soon discover they know less about him than they imagined.

A series of revelations uncover some home truths while everyone tries to keep up appearances for the sake of his widow – and then an unexpected and unexplained mourner arrives.
