The Veronica's Veil Players will present the comedy, Where There's a Will There's a Relative by Roger Karshner and featuring Daniela DiRenzo, Joe DiRenzo, Cheryl Esposito Kaufman, Craig Keith, Mike Kirlin, and Debbie Uzarski and directed by Denny Martin.
According to the story, Sam Price, a wealthy entrepreneur, has just recently passed away and, at his request, has been laid out in his townhouse. With the corpse in the bedroom, his immediate family—sister, brother, nephew and niece—have gathered to discuss their inheritance, a meeting that descends into acrimony over the division of property.
Much to their chagrin, they learn that Sam has left his entire estate to the church, a discovery that results in them reluctantly seeking the advice of a person they deem to be of unsavory moral character. His advice seemingly solves their dilemma until they realize that the solution involves compromise. Many reversals drive a story that comically reveals avarice, mistrust and chicanery.
Where There's a Will There's a Relative will be presented in the Veronica's Veil Auditorium, 44 Pius Street, South Side Slopes. Admission to the play which begins at 7:30 p.m. on November 12, 13, 14, 20 and 21, and at 2 p.m. on November 22 will be $12.50. Discounts are available for seniors and students.
