Summary

Melody thought being a young wife was hard, until she became a widow. Luckily her mother-in-law is an expert in the field. As Melody navigates the prickly terrain of pressed black dresses, well-meant advice and inappropriate outbursts, she stumbles toward understanding what it means to find someone through losing them.  A bittersweet look at the messy parts of life, this quirky comedy contemplates how grief, devotion and hope can persevere within us all. Contains strong language.



Inside Melody's iPod

Music is an important component of Be a Good Little Widow — it permeates the production and helps define character and mood. Music also plays a significant role in playwright Bekah Brunstetter’s writing process. She says, “I had a playlist when I was first writing the piece, and I tend to always have at least one song when I’m writing that I listen to over and over to help me access the emotional underpinnings of what I’m working on.” Brunstetter put together a playlist for Melody, a peek inside the character’s musical world.
