L to R: Alex Mooteeall, Duane Chivon Ferguson, Natasha Hakata & B. Bastian

“Death in the Family” is a series of five darkly comedic whimsical vignettes about the effects of death, grief, and trauma. With intensity and humor, the bold new show explores the conversations we often never get to have -- whether it's two preteens pondering the ramifications of being born, brothers who wonder if anyone else is as lonely, if and when revenge is justified, what happens to the people left behind after violence, or how older and younger siblings experience parents in different ways.
