  • Zee Zee Theatre presents Premiere of Dead People’s Things

With timely precision, Zee Zee Theatre presents the world premiere of Dead People’s Things by award-winning local writer Dave Deveau from April 17–May 5, 2019, at Studio 16. This poignant, darkly comic tale based on true events is a reflection on the stories behind the things we collect as we go through life. The play is a heartrending haunting that examines loneliness and the strange contradiction between belongings and belonging.

Dead People’s Things tells the story of Phyllis, a millennial who inherits a house and all of its contents after her estranged hoarder aunt commits suicide. Phyllis must then collaborate with her neighbour Beatrice, who has been named executor of the estate, to understand the life of a woman she barely knew through the myriad, eclectic items she left behind.

The production is based on the real-life events Deveau and his husband, director Mackenzie, experienced following the death of the playwright’s aunt. The narrative has been fictionalized and characters have been shifted into new personalities, but the heart and root of the work reside in truth. The deeply personal Dead People’s Things marks Deveau’s 11th play, following acclaimed works such as My Funny Valentine and Elbow Room Café: The Musical.

Dead People’s Things is directed by Jessie Award-nominee Mackenzie, whose most recent production was Zee Zee Theatre’s My Funny Valentine (2017). The creative team includes set designer Jennifer Stewart, lighting designer Sophie Tang, costume designer Hannah Case, and sound designer Mishelle Cuttler.

Tickets are $28–34 at theatrewire.com.
