Reading of the Will has never been this hilariously sinister . . . or this filled with outrageous, cut-throat family members all vying for the millions left to unlikely heirs. You'll meet the various Tomb Family members, one by one, each one more bizarre than the last. Be prepared to be 'serenaded' by werewolves, 'entertained' by Julius Caesar, and even 'embedded in the garden' by a sweet little old aunt who plants more than just seeds in her flower beds. By the end of the show, there are more corpses than live members left in the cast. All is revealed as the plot twists and turns to its surprising conclusion.
A Tomb With a View calls for 6 women and 4 men. All roles are open.
AGE NOTE: The age range is a general guide to the approximate age of each character. Some characters can be played older or younger depending on the director’s vision. Your actual age is less important than your ability to portray a character of the required age.
