About the show

Written, directed, and performed by Luke Walker, this multimedia solo show evokes the experience of a wake to explore the juxtapositions of life and death, good and evil, and body and spirit. More…

The spirit of Dick Johnson lives on after his death. At his wake, Dick is able to reanimate his corpse, grab a bottle of his beloved booze, and enlighten attendees about the spirit world. The deceased was a foul-mouthed, racist, misogynistic alcoholic, and the afterlife according to Dick is a grim, eternal, inescapable astral plane where the consequence of human misdeeds is an endlessly replaying loop of one’s most terrible memories. In his case, those recollections frequently involve his pedophiliac Uncle Willy, who tortured him in the living world and appears in the next to add on to Dick’s commentary.
