This Southern Gothic chronicles a family's odyssey to bury their matriarch. The Bundrens must do battle with floods, fire and their private demons as calamity and chaos haunt their 40-mile funeral procession across Mississippi. Touching and darkly humorous, it's proof that the power of humanity to create good is undiminished. This vibrantly theatrical adaptation of one of the finest 20th century novels features multiple narrators on a bare stage, a supremely versatile cast, and powerful movement-based physical theatre devised by Canada’s masters of the genre, Theatre Smith-Gilmour.
