About the Play
’ Til Death Do Us Part is a farce about love, marriage, and how far those bonds can be pushed before they break. At a small-town hotel, Kira and Ryan are two days from their wedding, when, through a series of unfortunate events, they wake up to a dead stranger in their bed. With friends and family arriving by the minute, and Kira’s disapproving mother breathing down their necks, the couple must hide the body and get through dinners, rehearsals and family celebrations without being discovered. As they struggle to keep their secret under wraps, cracks in their seemingly perfect relationship appear and multiply, leading to a race to the altar where they face that age-old question: “If you can’t hide a body together, why are you getting married in the first place?”

A rollicking farce that deals with the complexities and tribulations of love, marriage, and covering up a potential murder. Laugh out loud funny tied together with touching moments that make each character a value to the story.

We were delightfully surprised by this hilarious frolicking goofy play! The performers timed their facial expressions and pratfalls perfectly to bring this witty script to life! When you thought they “wouldn’t go there” they did! Twisty turny fun!

Not only was delighted to see a production by a local author performed, but it was also terrific. Great set, wonderful actors, hilarious storyline. Well done!
