Site-Specific Funeralogues to Debut in November logo
Stacy Mayer stars in The Funeralogues
The Funeralogues -- conceived and performed by Stacy Mayer, and written by playwright Robert Charles Gompers -- will perform at All Souls Chapel, November 7-December 13, with an opening set for November 15. Molly Marinik will direct.

The site-specific work is a look at eulogies and the people who deliver them. The evening uses actual text from real life eulogies including a tribute to soldiers lost in Afghanistan as remembered by a member of The Casualty Assistance Calling Operations, a eulogy for the performer's own grandfather, a fireman's eulogy read by a Minnesota school teacher, a eulogy delivered by Martin Luther King, Jr. for three child victims of a Birmingham church bombing, and even a humorous eulogy that a six-year-old imparts for her headless Barbie.
