"Dearly Departed"
by David Bottrell & Jessie Jones
Meet the Turpins: a small-town Southern family that puts the "fun" in "dysfunctional". The beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father's funeral, the Turpin's other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn for comfort to their friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need. Filled with colorful characters and poignant epiphanies, Dearly Departed will leave you with a smile on your face and tears in your eyes.
