Urning It: The Shortcut

COMEDY. This one-act version features all the quick-fire wit and hilarity that made the award-winning full-length "Urning It" so popular! Ward Hammacher has just discovered that his extremely rich aunt has died. To honor her last request, he packs up his family and treks 3,000 miles to scatter her ashes off the Santa Monica Pier and collect his inheritance. The drive proves perilous as the family experiences hilarious misadventures along the way—they get stopped in Texas, ripped off in Arizona, and jailed in Mexico. (Check out the original 90-minute version listed under Full-Lengths!)
