Past Tense

Past Tense

How soon after someone dies are you allowed to talk about them in past tense? Should we wear black for 40 days? Does peer pressure come into casket selection? Playwright/Performer Val Lieske takes audiences on a journey to embrace and accept the normality of thinking about strange things like pantyhose on the day of your father’s funeral. A personal story contemplating death, grieving, and whether or not there is pie in heaven.

"Past Tense stick in my mind as one of the most moving pieces of theatre I have ever seen. The honesty is tremendous." – Karen Johnson-Diamond
