Death Tax

It's 2010. December. Infirm Maxine thinks her daughter is paying nurse Tina to gently nudge her into the grave before the new year. Maxine thinks her daughter is doing this so she doesn't have to pay hefty estate taxes, taxes that take effect on January 1. Nurse Tina claims she is doing no such thing, but when Maxine offers Tina a portion of her sizable estate on the condition that she lives until the 1st, Tina changes her tune. But of course, nothing goes according to plan. Death Tax is a darkly comic play about death and taxes and how we live with both.
