About this show

What would happen if we all had an internal clock telling us the precise time of our death? Hickorydickory, complete with both gore and love scenes, explores the weight involved with the intriguing idea of a mortal clock embedded in the bodies of all humans. A dark comedy set in a watch and clock repair shop in the suburbs of Chicago, Wegrzyn's Hickorydickory winds extraordinary elements around an unusual family story. Someone has tinkered with Cari Lee's mortal clock and she's stuck at 17 for eternity, the same age as her daughter Dale. Yet Dale's worried about her own mortal clock; the one that tells her the day and time she'll die. Dad's an expert clock-smith, but some timepieces are not meant to be tampered with.
