Waukesha Civic Theatre

By Deanna Strasse

Best friends and roommates Lynda and Melinda have spent their entire lives taking care of others, and, as they approach retirement age, they are ready to focus on themselves. For Melinda, that means finally writing that anthrozoology book she’s always wanted to pen. For Lynda, that means coming to terms with her supposed gift to reawaken the dead. Things get complicated when Melinda’s anxious and uptight niece Beth comes to visit, throwing their idyllic though unorthodox life into a tailspin.

Between a very dead bird, a very live tortoise, and these women all trying to figure out the secret to life, the city of Green Lake, Wisconsin may never be the same.
