"A touching, life-affirming, deeply emotional drama with a generous dose of humor." - New York Daily News
With three sell-out runs at the Gaiety Theatre Dublin and full houses up and down the country, this stage adaptation of the internationally best-selling book has audiences laughing and crying in equal measure.
A heartwarming exploration of friendship and life, Tuesdays with Morrie 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 programme 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.
The book changed the lives of many who read it, and was so hugely popular that it was turned into a film starring Jack Lemmon. The play, which has toured Ireland to packed houses, brilliantly captures the essence of the story in a way that may make you shed a tear, but above all will make you laugh.
Tuesdays with Morrie is directed and produced by Breda Cashe and performed by Terry Byrne as Morrie Schwartz and Andy Murray as Mitch Albom. It was written for the stage by Mitch Albom and Jeffrey Hatcher.
