Azrael, the angel of death, is responsible for making sure every soul that passes through makes it to the other side. Her ferryman, Kharon, has only one job to do: bringing the souls across the River Styx.

The only problem is that Kharon’s getting bored of paddling a boat everyday and wants to hire someone else to do it for him. What do you do when you don’t want to do your only job?

Find out how Kharon overcomes his personal dilemma while Azrael maintains the natural order of life & death in the most inclusive, LGBTQ-friendly dark comedy musical in all of theater!
