Description: Liv After Death is a comedy about the loud, Italian Esposito family in upstate New York, who laugh their way through divorce, loss, and challenging mother-daughter relationships.   Nicky Esposito, the patriarch of the family,  has just suffered an untimely death, and his family is left to pick up the pieces of their lives. The play takes place in a remote cabin outside of Oneonta, NY where Liv, Nicky’s wife, seeks closure from her neighbor, Donna who is a Medium.  Liv’s adult daughters return home to bury their father, but their own personal problems become a topic of Italian dinner conversation.  Liv After Death is a laugh-out-loud comedy that may also make you shed a tear before it’s over.  This is our Florida Theatre Conference competition entry.
