Tuesdays with Morrie

Friday 03th May 2024
Location: Watergate Theatre, Parliament Street, Kilkenny. R95 D320
Tuesdays with Morrie is adapted from the phenomenally popular first novel by Mitch Albom. It is an 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.
It is a heart-warming exploration of friendship and life. It will make you cry but above all it will make you laugh.

This production once again reunites producers Breda Cashe and Pat Moylan. Renowned for their many acclaimed productions over the past 25+ years including Alone It Stands and 12 Angry Men and the world premiere stage productions of The Shawshank Redemption and I, Keano.
‘Unforgettable! No matter how well you tell the story, the play makes it more vivid, more shattering, more humorous.’
