DADDY’S DYIN’ WHO’S GOT THE WILL? by Del Shores.
Set in a small Texas town in anytime, U.S.A., Daddy’s Dyin’ concerns the reunion of a family gathered to await the imminent death of their patriarch, who has recently suffered a physically, as well as mentally, disabling stroke. In essence, however, it is not the story of the impending demise of the father or the drafting of his will, but of a rebirth of the spirit of the family unit. Without becoming ponderous, losing a sense of humor or pandering to timeworn cliches about Texans or Texas drawls, the story shares many elements of a good summer novel: it’s a fast, delicious, easy read with funny moments, tense moments, touching moments, and characters you care about. – The Hollywood Reporter Presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.) Cast includes Jamie Ball, Sharon Cardona, Dana Davis, Brandon Dunphy, Jessica Faye, Lora Pateras, Kent Smith & Cathy Woodruff.

Jake’s women include a revered first wife who was killed years earlier in an accident, his daughter who is recalled as a child but is now a young woman, his boisterous and bossy sister, an opinionated analyst, his current wife who is leaving Jake for another man, and a prospective third wife.
