Wooden Overcoats is a sitcom about two rival funeral parlours on a channel island.
After its critically acclaimed first season - available on iTunes - Wooden Overcoats returns for an eagerly anticipated run of brand new episodes - and for five nights only, you can see them performed live, before your very eyes and ears!
Rudyard Funn runs a funeral home in the village of Piffling Vale. He used to run it by himself. He doesn't anymore... Now Rudyard has to share the family business with his sister, the stressed and repressed mortician Antigone Funn. Ably assisted by their savvy dogsbody Georgie Crusoe, and a mouse called Madeleine, can Rudyard and Antigone work together to defeat their gloriously handsome competitor, Eric Chapman?
