"Young wife Melody has never been to a funeral — until her husband dies in a plane crash," press notes state. "Expected to instantly assume proper widowhood, Melody is left to wonder, what’s the right way to grieve? Fortunately, her mother-in-law is a professional. Widow, that is. Under her guidance, Melody must try her best to be a good little widow."

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

Be A Good Little Widow is being produced by Andrew Carlberg, Christopher Brown, Sara Botsford and Oleynik.
