The Gravediggers Union

A group of people work at a cemetery in the fictional Ashworth, New Hampshire… some wishing they were elsewhere, others perfectly happy to be miserable where they are. Ronnie used to be married to Bobby, who is unhappily married to Ricky. Mike plays drums in a wedding band on the weekend and can’t stop talking about how incredible the song “Pour Some Sugar on Me” is. Johnny shows up at the cemetery surreptitiously recording a podcast called “Welcome to AshTown.” They all work together digging holes and passing the time. When the WalMart of cemeteries opens across the street everybody begins to worry about losing their jobs. So they plan to put on a play to raise money to buy the cemetery themselves. The only problem is nobody goes to plays anymore…
