Tuesdays with Morrie
Queanbeyan Performing Arts Centre presents
Tuesdays with Morrie

3 Mar 2015 to 15 Mar 2015

By: Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom
Based on the book by Mitch Albom

Director: Liz Bradley

Presented by: Queanbeyan City Council


Multi-award winning Canberra actors: Graham Robertson as Morrie (Canberra Area Theatre (CAT) awards Best Actor in a Leading Role and Best Actor in a Featured Role) and Dave Evans as Mitch (CAT Awards 2 x Best Actor in a Musical)


Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, A Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson by Mitch Albom is the true account of Albom's interactions with Morrie Schwartz and how they impacted his life. Morrie Schwartz was Albom's college professor at Brandeis University where the two formed a special bond. Over the years Albom loses touch with Schwartz until he learns Morrie is dying from Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS), which prompts him to rekindle their friendship. Mitch visits with Morrie in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. This new relationship turned into one final "class": lessons in how to live. Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.


Now the best-selling memoir of all time, Tuesdays with Morrie began as a modest labour of love to help pay some of Schwartz's medical bills. Today, the book has sold more than 15 million copies in more than 50 editions around the world.

‘An extraordinary contribution to the literature of death.’ ~ Boston Globe

‘One of those stories that kind of sneak up and grab people’s hearts over time.’ ~ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
