Cast: 4m., 1w. Wilkie Thomas, an undertaker in a small Appalachian town, is quizzing his assistant, Paul, when eccentric, 83-year-old Melvin Combs enters, announcing that his wife's dead body is in the car. Wilkie and Paul listen as the old man weaves fantastic tales about the last few hours and his wife's death. Upbeat and wildly comical, the play features a man of strength and old-fashioned character. One int. set.
