Over My Dead Body

Derek Benfield

  an amateur production by arrangement with Samuel French

  Producer: Mark Nichols


Following his wife's recent death Gerald hopes to spend the rest of his days alone with his memories. But he reckons without his late wife's "forward planning", which results in a series of unexpected events occurring that Gerald had not anticipated. With the help of his daughter and son-in-law, Gerald strives to maintain his independence and keep unexpected visitors at bay. But the recalling of memories revives events from the past that are both funny and sad.
