WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Veronica, known in the netherworld as Miss Witherspoon, has killed herself. Why? Because of Skylab. Look, it's complicated. The thing is that she thought the afterlife would be a rest. However, she finds herself in the Bardo, and her spiritual guide, besides being annoying, expects her to reincarnate and live life all over again. Can she opt out? The world is going to hell, and she wants no part of it. But the world needs Miss Witherspoon, so hopefully Gandalf and Jesus can convince her to go back and try again.
Playwright Christopher Durang (Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike) takes you to a wonderfully zany, depressing, and hilarious afterlife in Miss Witherspoon.
