#210. Strange Tree Group presents Funeral Wedding: The Alvin Play. The Fisher family is odd. Two scandals make them the town outcasts. They’ve got skeletons in the closet and ghosts in the attic. Instead of dealing with the past dalliance and more recent murders, the Fishers pretend nothing is wrong. Dad escapes into games. Mom escapes into drugs. Alvin escapes into the attic. And Anna tries for the permanent escape from her family, marriage. When family secrets are finally shared, the Fishers have to finally deal with jolts of reality. Funeral Wedding: The Alvin Play is creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re all together ooky… the Fisher family!
