To wake The Dead A murder Mystery Comedy play
Setting: An Irish Wake
Cast Total: 11 = 6-males 5-females

Renown Supernatural Mystery writer Fred Finnegan has died under unusual circumstances and all his friends have gathered at his wake. His friend and literary agent Lenord Elmore presides over the wake along with Fred's widow Joyce. Also in attendance are all of Fred's old friends: ex-police Chief Wambaugh and officer Francis. Danny Runyon, a reformed "wise guy" and his doll (date) Peaches Marie Crabtree. Agatha Fletcher, a news reporter from the Associated Wire.   There is also a faction of the 'Fredrick Finnegan Fan Club' at the wake: president Stephanie King, vice-president Deanna Koonz and secretary, Clyde Barker. 

The wake starts off in a traditional nature with good old Irish toasts and amusing stories about Freddie and his life, but the circumstances of Freddie's death keep coming into question. The one guest who would appreciate answers is Fred Finnegan himself. Problem is, only the nerd-ish Clyde Barker has the gift to "hear" dead people. Can Freddie use Clyde to find the answers he needs?

Was Fred murdered by someone at the wake? He's dying to find out.
