About the Play

When Mary and Joe fall in love in Donald Payton's Rest Assured, they don't expect to cause a feud that spills over into the afterlife! One father supports them; the other forbids their marriage. They seem at an impasse until one father dies; that's when the haunting begins and the hilarity ensues.
