It's a hot July day at the Good Shepherd Funeral Parlor and Martin Lamb, the mortician, is presiding over the wake of the late Walter Porteus. His dream of a perfect wake is undermined by his son Jimmy, whose interests are more amatory than funereal, and by the conniving, contentious Porteus family members, who are already clashing over the will. To further inflame matters, the air conditioning breaks down and the wrong body turns up in the casket. Then a mysterious mourner appears and a valuable piece of jewelry disappears. When the air conditioning repairman pulls a gun and decides to hold them all hostage, things really start to get interesting in this hilarious black comedy.

Calling all local writers and memoirists!

In memoir you are (almost always) the hero of the story, with an exciting array of characters drawn from life to help move things along.

The workshop will focus on recognizing how the people you know and love have a place in your story and how to deal honestly and respectfully with difficult characters. We’ll look at how identifying characters as protagonist, antagonist or ally can help to clarify your story, and examine the way voice and dialogue can help make the characters on the page as vivid as their originals.

Do come along and meet with other writers, to share ideas and skills.


This workshop is part of an ongoing program 'Stories from the Suburbs' sponsored by Moonee Valley Council.

'Stories from the Suburbs' is a free community writing program organised by Moonee Valley Memoirists and funded by Moonee Valley City Council. Over twelve months, Sam Merrifield Library and Avondale Heights Library will host a series of writing workshops and mentoring sessions with Lyndel Caffrey, award-winning writer, teacher, mentor and manuscript assessor. Lyndel's workshops will be supplemented by regular meetings of the Moonee Valley Memoirists. As well as getting to know other writers and building their creative writing skills, participants will have the opportunity to submit their writing for a Memoir and Local History Anthology to be published and launched in June 2019. This program is open to all. We particularly encourage the many memoirists, life writers, local and family history writers who write about, live in, and work in Moonee Valley.
