You’ll Be Happy When I’m Dead

About This Show

Hit and Run Productions in association with Aching Dogs Theater presents You’ll Be Happy When I’m Dead, a new comedy by Bill Rutkoski opening in the Crowne Theater of the Producers Club. Don Creedon directs. The cast features Nina Rochelle, Bill Rutkoski, Mike Rutkoski, Joan Porter* and Pamela Scott*. (*Members of Actors Equity. Whenever Bob and his younger brother Jimmy travel from New York to visit their feisty, eccentric mother Dorothy it feels like they never left home. Getting on and a little sickly, Dorothy comes to depend on more and more on Bob while Jimmy typically watches a Planet of the Apes marathon on the upstairs TV. Instead of gratitude, Dorothy can only give her two essentially loyal sons guilt for taking the trouble to be with her. She maintains that they want her to die so they can be rid of her, an accusation that comes close to the truth when Dorothy attempts to alienate a former girlfriend of Bob’s that he’s still madly in love with.
