Welcome to Bowengabbie, where the elderly abound and meals-on-wheels is a boom industry.

When Oscar left he swore he’d never come back. He has a fiancĂ©e, a new job and a fresh start. But then Aunt Jeannie dies and not even Oscar can refuse. And then the rest start dropping like flies.

From burials at sea and amateur musicals through to a scale recreation of the Normandy Landings, join Oscar as he attends a series of increasingly ridiculous funerals as the locals compete to throw Bowengabbie’s biggest ever send-off!

When Oscar meets Abby, with his own wedding only weeks away, his whole world turns on its head as funerals become fun and death something to celebrate.

Is it love bringing him back? Or is something more sinister at play?

Death in Bowengabbie is a big, black, tender-hearted comedy about love, loss and the mourning after...
