“I’ll be honest. I’m doing well. Really well. But I’m not gonna pay one cent for her God damn funeral. Call the city. They’ll come, take the body, dump it in the ground before lunch. No charge.”


For Dirdra and Janice, Mom’s dead and it’s a great day. There’s going to be a celebration, and hopefully nothing will go flying out the window – including one of them. A viciously comic and tense fifteen-year reunion between two sisters on the day of their mother’s unforgettable death. Featuring Louise Lambert and Arielle Rombough.   World premiere.

2016-2017 Season

Northern Light Theatre unveils its 41st anniversary season of producing challenging, exciting, dynamic and controversial works of live performance.  Riddled with untimely death, apprehension, anxiety and family secrets, the season will feature three plays – including two world premieres- that showcase what NLT does best: creating theatre with language rich texts that are dark, poetic, funny and which reflect a complex world and lead us to question our hierarchy of values.


See three shows for the price of two.

  1. NLT reserves the best seats in the house for subscribers with a personalized name card on the seat.
  2. NLT treats their subscribers to the nines with tons of special treats and gifts.
  3. This year NLT subscribers are the only ticket holders who are guaranteed tickets to our co-pro with Theatre Yes, ANXIETY– with very limited seating, this subscription is a very hot ticket!
