About this show

Angel Feathers is a two-act dark comedy set in Roy and Mona Roger's enclosed back porch in LA, where all the characters except the visiting daughter from New York City have cancer. Roy and the blind family dog are terminal. After hearing distant arias and the flutter of angel feathers, Roy is Heaven bent on answering the call up yonder and taking the dog with him. Standing in his way are his wife, the Jewish couple next door and ultimately his only child. Why won't he fight for his life? For all of his cantankerousness, nobody around him is ready for him to leave. What will he do?
