"Young wife Melody has never been to a funeral — until her husband dies in a plane crash," press notes state.

Under her guidance, Melody must try her best to be a good little widow."

The production features set design by Lacey Anzelc, lighting design by Dan Weingarten and sound design by Christopher Brown.
