Dinner At Home Between Deaths
Sean Lynch announces to his beloved wife, Fiona, they are dropping their cultured New York life and returning to his family’s ancestral home in Ireland.

When Fiona’s sister Kat arrives looking for her step-daughter Lily, one of Sean’s employees, the truth gradually emerges. A pitch black comic thriller, DINNER AT HOME BETWEEN DEATHS examines the American Dream and American identity in the face of eroding ethics. - Andrea Lepcio , Playwright
