A Comedy about Life and Death as a Deadhead
2W/ 3M
Approximate Playing Time: 90 minutes

We all remember where we were when John Lennon died. Well, at least those of us alive at the time. Deadheads can tell you exactly where they were and what they were doing when Jerry Garcia took his last breath. If your heart was in the 60’s then a part of you is a Deadhead whether you admit it or not. For Dorianne and her partner Andy, along with their housemates Kate and Saul, “life” and “Deadhead” are synonymous at any age. They have adopted a way of life reflective of the lyrics in their favorite music and their own air-band, The Deadheads, is a living tribute to The Grateful Dead. But when Andy, the only real musician in the band, suffers a debilitating stroke, can a visit from Jerry himself shock the life back into him? Not if he’s dead. So, what can Dorianne, Kate, and Saul do to help their very best friend? Let’s just say that Dorianne has no intention of leaving him to rot in a nursing home. $20 Single-Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
