“I’m worried about your health…it seems to be improving.”

“an achingly funny black comedy.”

“a small masterpiece.”

Kemp is a banker. When he receives a phone call from an elderly aunt on her deathbed, he rushes across the country to pay her a visit, anticipating a swift funeral. But she’s not going just yet. As the seasons change and the weather turns, she defies his expectations in this deliciously absurd, incredibly funny, and poignantly tender play.

Vigil premiered at the Belfry in September 1995 and has played half the world over and been translated into two dozen languages.
