Dearly Departed

Published by at 1:39 pm under General Information

Wow – two weeks in a row we have been treated to some delightfully entertaining theater here in wonderful downtown La Veta. Of course, we get dressed up for the occasion, have dinner with friends at The La Veta Inn and then mosey over to the intimate and comfortable theater. We always remark how lucky we are to live here and be entertained so well. This play was a collaboration of professional actors from the Denver area and three of our local talent, who performed brilliantly. Set in the Present and located somewhere below the Mason-Dixon line we were taken into the lives of the Turpin’s as they deal with the death of a family member and all the hilarity of family dynamics when you come together for the funeral. Minimal set design, but the actors made you believe you were at the funeral home staring at the corpse or driving in the car with all the screaming kids in the back seat. We laughed till we thought we’d die. Don’t miss an opportunity to take in this play if it comes to your local theater. Or come see ours at www.lavetatheater.org
