A comedy by Eric Chappell - Wife After Death - is next month’s offering from Louth Playgoers at the town’s Riverhead Theatre.

Comedian and national treasure Dave Thursby has died, and on the day of his funeral, friends and colleagues gather beside his coffin to pay their last respects.

Dave’s glamorous young widow Laura has arranged a funeral to remember, complete with horse-drawn hearse and an attendant dog.

An unfamiliar woman turns up in flamboyant mourning clothes - it is Dave’s ex-wife from before he was famous.

A series of revelations about his dubious past and recent philandering end with everyone asking themselves if they ever knew the ‘real’ Dave.

The play runs from November 5 to 10; curtain up 7.30pm.
