Breda Cashe proudly presents Tuesdays with Morrie, a stage adaptation of the international best-selling novel by Mitch Albom, for two nights only on Friday and Saturday, February 1st-2nd at the Simon Ryan Theatre, Tipperary Excel.
Breda Cashe will direct while Terry Byrne will feature as Morrie Schwartz and Andy Murray plays 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. And, as Variety magazine says “you’ll laugh, you’ll cry”. Tickets are priced at E16 (E14 concession).
