The Bastard Seth McNeill

About This Show

Two brothers mourn the loss of their mother or father or a familiar looking stranger in the right coffin at the wrong time. Reminiscences are shared, good times were had. The sister they never knew Dad wanted them to have has a bit of a chip on her shoulder of the burden. What was it Mom always said? We couldn’t hear it but it was sure memorable. Let’s start over.
