Description

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 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. _Tuesdays with Morrie _explores culture, family, and the meaning of life.

This production is presented by the Inland Valley Repertory Theatre Company and features veteran local actors Duane Thomas and Terre Gunkel.

Albom’s book has sold more than 14 million copies worldwide to date, was adapted into a successful film, and premiered as an off-Broadway play in 2001.
