A dark comedy about death, dying and other funny stuff, Vigil is "hilarious, quirky, and heartfelt", raves Variety.

Childhood was anything but normal for Kemp, as he successfully avoided all family contact for 30years. That is, until the day he was guilted into taking care of his dying aunt. Now Kemp impatiently waits for the death of his bedridden aunt, attempting to fill in the time with recollections of his peculiar childhood along with playful musings on mortality. The New York Times calls the play "a gem! Vigil is a happy mix of genres."
