Inspired by a trip to the Lower East Side's Tenement Museum, Burke and Ferris resurrect a group of female "professional mourners" from the late 1800s, and invite them into our lives to wail and keen for our inanimate and animated modern appliances. Come pinpoint your grieving so that somehow and someday we may leave our burdens behind. Let's  breathe together in some sort of solidarity during these troubled times. WE KEEN! WE WAIL! WE ARE PROFESSIONALS!
