The stage adaptation of the No. 1 International bestseller is directed and produced by Breda Cashe and performed by Terry Byrne as Morrie Schwartz and Andy Murray as Mitch Albom.
Tuesdays with Morrie, written for the stage by Mitch Albom and Jeffrey Hatcher, is the autobiographical story of Mitch Albom, an accomplished journalist driven solely by his career, and Morrie Schwartz, his former college professor. Sixteen years after graduation, Mitch happens to catch Morrie's appearance on a television news program and learns that his old professor is battling Lou Gehrig's Disease. Mitch is reunited with Morrie, and what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a last class in the meaning of life.
It is a heartwarming exploration of friendship and life.
As Variety says You’ll laugh. You’ll Cry.
Andrew Murray plays Albom with absolute conviction ranging through the emotions of irritation, guilt and sadness. And Terry Byrne is almost startlingly excellent, utterly believable, physically controlled to perfection. - Emer O’Kelly, Sunday Independent
