JULY 12 – SEPT 14


A comedy in one funeral…
Three cousins (primas), an urn, and one really long day. It’s the day of her mother’s funeral and Arcie is losing her grip. But her cousins Nando and Clara are having none of it. A fast-paced and hilarious world premiere set along the waters of the Rio Grande in the San Luis Valley of Southern Colorado, Prima’s Guide to Funerals tells the story of family, laughter, grief, love, and finding yourself alongside the ones who know you the best: your primas.
World Premiere, Dramedy
