Life Insurance


Three idiosyncratic characters—an insurance salesman, a volunteer firefighter, and a standardized test instructor—tell of a fatal motorcycle crash on a rural Virginia road.

Rapidly switching between interwoven monologues, with vivid details and unexpected points of view, Life Insurance creates a tragicomic world of restless intensity and stubborn hopes.

Written and Performed by Joel Jones
Directed by Matt Weir
