Daddy’s Dyin’, Who’s Got the Will?
Fort Findlay Playhouse
Thursday – Saturday, 8 p.m.
Sunday, 5 p.m.
Set in a small Texas town in anytime, U.S.A., Daddy’s Dyin’, Who’s Got the Will?, concerns the reunion of a family gathered to await the imminent death of their patriarch, who has recently suffered a physically as well as mentally disabling stroke. In essence, however, it is not the story of the impending demise of the father or of the drafting of his will, but of a rebirth of the spirit of the family unit. Buy your tickets here!
