Mrs. Ellis, the English lady who caters small weddings and funeral teas, says she usually serves boiled ham, “but seeing as ’ow this is my first cremation, I didn’t think boiled ’am would be appropriate.” As the ladies sip their tea, it becomes apparent that someone has misplaced the urn with dear Uncle Jacob’s ashes. When Sarah suggests the tea tastes odd, and they discover the tea tin still locked in the cupboard, they face an appalling possibility. A riotously funny play for an all-female cast.

Over tea, family and friends of Uncle Jacob gather to remember him. Ladies are afraid the tea has been mistaken for Uncle Jacob's ashes. That they are drinking his ashes as tea.
Play has a definite beginning, middle, and end. Plot flows well. The colorful characters are individual and unique. We find the relationship each has with the departed. Climax happens near end of play.
Love the cockney british accent. Would be a fun competition piece for teens.
