Jane Haley is the punny voice of the comic strip “King Tot,” a three-panel strip about a nine-year-old pharaoh in Ancient Egypt. Jane has just been nominated for the Chuckling Willow, the single most important award for female cartoonists in New England. All seems to be going well until bleak news strikes the Haley household. As Jane tries to hide her coping by working extensively on her comics, her art suffers as her main character tries to find his way through the Land of the Dead to find his “mummy.” Playwright Olivia Dufault pairs humor with heartache in this exploration of the processing of grief.

Praise For…

"Sweet and spiky new tragicomedy [...] this production makes a case for whimsy as a filter both for shutting out and eventually coming to terms with an unforgiving world and one’s unforgivable self." - The New York Times
