MARYSVILLE – It’s Death’s first day on the job, but somehow the rookie specter manages to screw everything up, starting by showing up at the wrong house for his first appointment. That’s the introduction to the Red Curtain Foundation’s presentation of “The Family Business” by local playwright Griffin Harwood. It runs April 20-May 6 at the Red Curtain Arts Center, 9315 State Ave. #J.

As the play continues, thanks to Death’s inexperience, the woman of the house, Caroline, learns more about her eventual demise than she should.

Fast forward 20 years, Caroline dies and finds herself arriving in the afterlife on the day of the Apocalypse, meeting Death and his family – War, Pestilence and Famine. Now it’s up to Caroline to convince the Four Horsemen that Earth should be spared.

Directed by David Alan Morrison, this modern absurdist comedy juxtaposes fresh cultural references with iconic mythical imagery to create a unique tale of love, redemption and power of the individual. Performances are Friday and Saturday nights at 8 and Sundays at 2 p.m. in the Goodwill shopping center, behind the EvCC cosmetology school. Tickets are $18 for adults.

The play contains mature content and themes and is not suitable for younger audiences.
