Play Details: Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces — that is if they don’t kill each other first. Not only does matriarch Dorothy have to contend with sudden widowhood, but she’s also faced with church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey’s snake-in-the-grass brother making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivalry. Funerals bring out the worst, the best and the funniest in people, and the Frye’s are no exception. A big-hearted comedy about family — Southern-style.
Broadway World Review: Osborne & Eppler’s SOUTHERN FRIED FUNERAL is a Down Home Hit by Jeffrey Ellis Oct. 27, 2011:
Playwrights Dietz Osborne and Nate Eppler have created a warm, funny and wonderfully witty play that is fairly redolent of magnolia blossoms and a pot liquor seasoned by family rivalries and long-held regrets and recriminations. In short, it’s just like walking into your mama’s house again, the memories washing over you like so much summer humidity, to pick up a tall glass all sweaty from the melting ice inside the sweetened tea made from springwater and love. This show is heartfelt – yet uproariously funny in a way that only Southerners can be – authentic and genuine, farfetched and unbelievable, just like we Southerners like all our stories.
